1888, was affixed when delivered 6omo
weeks after. If in the meantime a simi

I ditl nut know it. It must bo plain to
tho Commissioners that tho position of
tho surveyor has been extremely tin
ploasant, and scarcely just to him, ond
ho may be oxcuscd in culling attention
to the fact that ho has not until tp-day
had specific Instructions touching' tho
act of August, 1888, ond that act In itself
being insulllclout to affect its important
nnd desirable object, ho carnestlv asks
as herotoforo suggested vorbalty that
the earliest jiosslblo legislation bo had to
mako it in all respects effective.
"I may, perhaps, hcio call attention
to your verbal order of somo four mouths
since (through Secretary Tlnda.ll) to hold
up all subdivisions 11 led prior to tbo act
of August. 1088, and not actually com
mitteu to tho books. Tlicso plats stlil
await your instructions. It has not been
the intention of tho surveyor to place
theso or nny other plat on record without
tho npprovnl of tho Commissioners, nor
has he In tills or any othorinstnnco dono
so. Tho law is new and only required
exposition by tho Commissioners nud
adoption of rules by them, and brought
to his attention nnd in all instances they
will uo followed."

whether tne Commissioners could
