Section 1. That section two of chapter three hundred and ninety-seven, laws of eighteen hundred and eighty-seven, be amended as follows: Strike out the words "provided the special taxes so levied and collected shall not be less than sixteen and two-thirds cents on the one hundred dollars valuation of property and fifty cents on the poll," and insert in lieu thereof the following: ''Provided, the special taxes so levied and collected shall not exceed, annually, twenty cents on the one hundred dollars valuation of property and sixty cents on the poll."

Sec. 2.

Sec. 3. That this Act shall be in force from and after the first day of July, eighteen hundred and eighty-nine.
