CARDIFF CORPORATION. PROPERTY AND MARKETS COM- MITTEE. SITE OF A TEMPORARY MARKET. The ordinary meeting of the above committee was held yesterday, Alderman D. E. Jones in the chair. The business on the agenda was to receive a report from the sub-committee as to a suitable place for holding temporary market during the te-building of the .st. Mary-street Market. A desultory conversation arose as to what was best to be done under the circumstances, and it was ultimately agreed that the space of the old houses adjoining the Free Library, which will have to be pulled down very soon, should be utilised for a temporary market. On the Mayor entering the Chairman explained that it would be desirable to hasten the pulling down of the houses. The back of the Town-hall had been suggested, but they thought that would interfere with the prison van and the discharge of town and police business. They should hasten the demolition in order to retain the tolls of the market.—The Mayor asked if they had thought of the Circus. A gentlemen uncon- nected with the Council met bim in the street and asked him what the Council meant do- ing about it. He admitted that he did not know of any site, and the gentleman referred to—a practical man—said promptly, Why not the Circus?"—The Chairman said it would not be large enough.—The Mayor observed that he made a similar reply, and was told that it was about two-thirds of the size of the market.—The Chairman said the Circus was occupied now.— The Mayor said he believed it was occupied only temporarily. If they put up temporary buildings at the Free Library they would be very costly. — Mr Harpur (borough surveyor) I do not think 1/10, Mr Mayor—it need be only of a very temporary character.—The Mayor and Mr David Jones expressed the opinion tbat they would receive serious opposition from the Free Library Committee.—The Chairman said it was surely not a matter of life and death, and the market tolls were more important and more urgent than the free libraty proposal, which, any way, was still far distant from realisation.— The Mayor expressed the opinion that, as a matter of good policy, it would be well to try and enlist the co-operation of the Free Library Committee.—The Chairman remarked that the Library Committee did not meet between this and the next Council meeting.—It was eventually decided not to take any definite steps until a meeting of the Free Library Building Committee was called on Wednesday morning, that this committee might consult with them, It was also resolved in the meantime to see Mr Corbett, with a view of ascertaining if a part of the Cardiff Arms Park could be obtained for the purpose.
