PREFACE.

This Work has been prepared on the suggestion of several professional gentlemen by whom I have been engaged in relation to municipal matters. Up to the present time no cheap work furnishing a simple exposition of the municipal and sanitary functions of the Council has been published. This volume will be found to supply the necessary information in a popular form at a fourth of the outlay which has hitherto been required. The powers

of the Council, with respect to the supply of water and drainage, I have stated fully; also the proceedings connected with the poll, corrupt practices, and election petitions.

I have added information required for the purpose of obtaining the grant of a charter of incorporation, and the forms necessary for the purpose, together with a general collection of forms, which will be found especially adapted for newly-incorporated boroughs.

LOUIS GACHES.
