The Works Committee of the Munici pal Council reported to that body on Wednesday last that thiy had consid ered the matter of Improving Howick slreefc between George and Mitre-i streets, and had; come to the conclusion that the best 'means of doing so would be to top-dress it with tarred blue me tal screenings at a cost of £60 per block. This expenditure the commit tee could not recommend. Alderman Gartrell, who had in the 1 first place moved the matter with a view to secur ing a better track to the Hospital, expressed the opinion that the esti mate was exorbitant. H-? thought that with tar and sand the cost would liot be more than £50. The Mayor re joined that the committee had decided that to put on sand and tar would be waste of money, and capped his argu ment by pointing out that via Russ'ell and Peel-streets there was a good avenue to the hospital.
