the limit of ; cost of $150,000, and the
Act of May : SO, 1908, authorized the
construction of t:e huilding at a limit
of cost- of $850,000, making the total
limit of" cost for site atd building
The 'Act of June 25, 1910, provides
for the acquisition of additional
land for the site at a limit of cost of
$350,t)00, which is to be payable out
of the $1,000,000 previously author
ised for both the site and Building.
Under the authorization of June 30,
1906, there ha been - expended for
the site, apprahately $105,000.
Condemnation proceedings have
been Instituted for the acquisition of
the. additional land authorized by the
act of June 25, 1910, and awards have
been made as follows:

No award has ieen made in tbe
case of the remaining parcel, which
is a comer lot containing 7000 square
feet, - but from Information received
from the United States Attorney, an
opinion could be ventured that the
award will be approximately $200,000.
making the. total for the acquisition
of all of the additional land required
In this connection it may be said
that the properties in question are in
the heart of the business and financial
district of the city, and the value of
same is thereby correspondingly
It Is estimated that an increase of
$300,000 in the present limit for the
site and building will be ample both
for the acquisition of the additional
land required for the site, and for the
construction of a suitable building.
