Undesirable Buildings. DUMPED AT COBURG. SAt. Coburg Council on Wednesday night the public works comnuittee re Scommended that, as a secondhand building had been removed iuto 'Younger street. without thle consent of Sthe council, a prosecution should be launched against the person responsi v ble. Cr. Keane said he had inspected the building. it. was one of those "shan. ties" sold recently at Montague in order to make room for railway exten Ssion there. The wall plate was abso lutely rotten, and the building gener ally was a disgrace to any district. The council should prohibit the erec tion of the structure, which was about 40 years old. The best thing to do Would be to put a match to it and let the fire brigade stand by. The survyor (Mr. W. M. i'ullar) said if the buildin had ben inspected at Port Melbourne it would never have been allowed into Coburg. The best course was to prosecute, and then ; take steps to condemn it and have it destroyed. The recommendation was agred to.
