TO THK EDITOR. Sir,—Now that Duncdin is really going to possess a fountain, which is to be placed in the Triangle, surely it behoves the City Council to do something towards assisting to improve this wretched spot. I am sure the ratepayers would not otject to an outlay of a few hundreds on it, seeing that many a hundred is annually squandered in some useless way. It is to be hoped that councillors will bury any little petty jealousies they may have in this matter, and pull together to beautify this site before the influx of visitors takes place. We are already tho laughing stock of the Northern tovvns in regard to the Triongle, seeing that the Council had one good offer for it, which was refused, and yet seem utterly incapable of doing anything towards improving it themselves. But I believe they had not power to lease it to the syndicate. If so, how about leasing the Cattle Market reserve for building purposes ?—I am, etc., Coßi?o. Dunedin, August 9.
