compact and means diversity. Each family,
therefore, must have a separate individual
representation, out of which rises diversity or
divisions, and discord is the corner stone of

ing funds to ca ny on its municipal govern
ment, which has a lottery feature. Certifi
cates, redeemable in 1924, bearing a low rate
