drawings, the Crown Agents shall place and keep the moneys
so remitted to them, or so much thereof as may not be required
for immediate payments, at interest, and shall hold all such
moneys and the accumulation thereon in trust to apply them
in the first place to the purchase of the debentures when they
can be obtained at a price not exceeding par, and, secondly, to
the redemption of the debentures by means of annual drawings.


18. After the date specified in the Ordinance authori-
zing a loan as that on which the contributions to the sinking fund
shall commence in respect of that loan, and so long thereafter as

any debenture may, if he thinks fit, be present, and shall then
in the presence of such debenture holders, if any, as may attend,
and of a Notary Public, draw by lot, out of the whole number
of debentures for the time being outstanding, debentures of the
specified nominal amount.

21. The Crown Agents shall thereupon declare the dis-
tinguishing numbers of the debentures drawn for redemption,
and shall, as soon as may be, by advertisement in the London
Times newspaper, specify those numbers and appoint a day
not being later as to each debenture than the day on which the
then current half-year's interest thereon is payable, on which
the principal moneys represented by the debentures so distin-
guished will be repaid.

22. On the day so appointed the Crown Agents shall, at
their office in London, on demand, pay to the holders of the
debentures drawn for repayment the principal moneys repre-
sented by those debentures, with all interest payable thereon up
to that day.

23. From and after the day appointed for the repayment
of any debenture all interest on the principal moneys represented
thereby shall cease and determine, whether payment of the prin-
cipal shall have been demanded or not.

24. Upon the repayment of the principal moneys repre-
sented by any debenture, the debenture, with all coupons there-
unto belonging, shall be delivered up to the Crown Agents, to be
by them cancelled and disposed of in such a manner as the
Administrator, or the Crown Agents acting on his behalf, may
decide. Any debenture redeemed by purchase shall likewise be
so cancelled and disposed of.
