The whole qciuestion now simply resolves itself into this--if the St. Ktilda residents waint iI cable tramway with blocks, instead.of ia horse tramway with common metal, they must pay for it.

The interest on the extrtu ntount, .'r.Se Cer ip pointed out, would be, at least, tjt3,tli per nuolllm, and even a...
