in tlio interest of such project, hut wc
have hoard but very little said In
reference to the drawbacks, ox port u

least $3,500, two vaults will cost at least

$11,000. Now, you havo records to bo
transferred from four counties, which
can't be drawn for less than $1,200 to
$1,500. So wo have a rough estimate
of what it cost to furnish the court
house after it lias been built, which
amounts to $8,100, leaving $0,000 with
