THE GAOL SITE.
MR FERGUS’S SCHEME,
WELLINGTON, Mat 17.
The Minister of Justice intends to make some improvement in the police buildings in Duoodm. The Macloggan street Court Is to be removed to the Registrar’s room, next door to the Resident Magistrate’s Court, and the Registrar is to have part of the Supreme Court chambers. Plans have been drawn np for a new gaol and police station, the latter to be located in the angle of the gaol site. Mr Fergus will take these plans down to Dunedin with him shortly, and if no farther objections are raised the buildings will be gone on with at once ; otherwise their erection will probably be postponed indefinitely. The department estimates that it will save a large sum annually by having both the courts under one roof, besides being much more convenient.
