  Alderman Grahame directed attention to the accumulation of trams and omnibuses in Hunter-street at night, between 10.15 and 10.45 o’clock, resulting in the blocking of the greater part of the thoroughfare, between Market and Perkln streets.

  On his motion it was decided to take steps with a view to having the waiting trams and omhibuses stand between Perkin-street and Brown-street.

  In reply to Alderman Christie, who asked a question in connection with improvements to Darby-street, which wao one of the works under the £60,000 loan, the city engineer said that tenders for the supply of machinery closed on April 17, but it would not be possible to start the work much before August.

  The tramway authorities were notified of what was to be done, and the work would be confined to 10ft 61n of road on each side.

  The specifications provided for a 2 inch coat|ing on a specially prepared asphalted street.
