-♦ The future of the Eastgate Clock Tower 3cheme is still clothed in uncertainty. A meet- ing of the committee was held in the Town Hall on Monday, and we understand that during the discussion the suggestion of a clock in the Town Hall tower was revived as an alternative to the Eastgate plan. Finally it was decided to call a meeting of the subscribers to ascertain whether in the event of the abandonment of the Eastgate tower they would consent to the diversion of their contributions to the Town Hall clock scheme. Ever since the erection of the effigy on the Eastgate, the tide of public opinion seems to have set in strongly against the project. While on paper the original drawing was admitted to be artistic and effective, the severe curtailment of the design necessitated to meet the objections of the adjoining property owners robbed it of much of its beauty. In view of the wide divergence of opinion on the Eastgate scheme, it would be a manifest mistake to push it further, and the citizens, we feel sure, would gladly welcome any proposition that would secure something approaching unanimity. A clock in the Town Hall tower we have advocated all along as a most desirable improvement, and as supplying all that is required to complete the handsome structure.
