TRIANGLE v. SOUTHERN MARKET RESERVE.
TO THE EDITOB. Sir,— l am surprised at the councillor for South Ward supporting the fixing of a market on the Triangle while there is a reserve laid out for the very purpose. Though the building ia'unpretentious, yet it can be extended as required. There is room for a horse market, milch cows, and small stock. If you count the number of houses in Cavershatn, St. Kilda, South Dunedin, Musselburgh, Mornington, the Glen, etc., you will find there are as many houses and people resident south of Jetty street as north of it. . , The Southern Market Reserve is only about five minutes’ walk from the Triangle, and it is nearer the railway station than any of the Melbourne or Sydney markets are. Further, it is in the direct way of the main road, and the Peninsula, Taieri, and Green Island settlers, from whom the main farm produce will be drawn. Why, then, is there an attempt to change the site ? The councillors are recreant to their trust in permitting it, and I have no doubt the electors of the ward will take them to task. I certainly think they should be called on to resign.—l am, etc., Alexander Cairns. Dunedin, May 30.
TO THE EDITOR. Sir,—lt is a moral certainty that the Legislature will not sanction any deviation from the trust created by the Act of 1886, and if the citizens vote for the introduction of an Act it will simply mean that the ratepayers will have to pay about L3OO for fees, law charges, etc., and nothing will be got in return. I would advise all my fellowcitizens to vote once and for all against the expenditure of their money in this way. If Mr Fish and Messrs Stanford and Milne wish to have a Bill introduced, let them give the Council a proper guarantee that they will pay all costs and expenses in the event of the Bill being thrown out, which it certainly will be.—l am, etc , Caution.. Dunedin, May 30.
