.There seems to bo ?n Impression in
the minds of some of tho gentlemen
requested to servo on this-commission
that it is oxpeetd-to raise the fund
by means of subscription lists. I de
sire to say that thir ls not my under
standing of the method to be pursued.
It is one of. tho 'purposes of this

raising the necessary fund?.
"It ls also proposed that the active
work is to bc in charge of th? execu

lend, tho weight of their influence and
cooperation to the movement,. and to
give euch suggestions and advice as
