the city council,, when that body, by a
resolution authorised the city treasurer
to refund the Interest paid by, abutting
property holder along Thirtieth street
before acceptance of ths compromise re
cently tendered to the council -by other
property owners on the same thorough
fare, , - . . ,
The compromise affected those who had
not yet paid the tax. Tbe council agreed
under the terms of tha offer to. accept
the principal ' due for-the Improvement,
without the Interest that had accumulated
on the principal. This caused those who
had already, paid, principal and Interest
to tff dlnrrlmlnatlon. The resolution of
Inst night puts all of tha abutting prop- ;
erty owners under the terms of the com-'
promise, and the interest already received
by the city will b returned.. - .
