TO TFIE EDITOR. Sir, —It is to be hoped thatthe ratepayers will, to a man, vote against the Triangle being meddled with, except in tho way of beautifying it. There are so few open spaces in the heart of the City that we cannot afford to have them built upon, V\ e do not require a market—the place is not ripe for one. I have known older towns than this where markets have been built, and they have been failures. We have quite enough “ white elephants ” in this City without putting up another. There arc always a number of the Council who cannot bo happy unless they are “ meddling and muddling.’’ When they arc not engaged in wasting the people’s money in building baths in a stinking locality, they are exercising their talents in defacing the City by an unsightly cutting. If they want work I would advise them to wall! in that cutting, and to a certain extent hide this monument to their folly.—l am, etc., A Ratepayer. Dunedin, June 8,
