The plans prepared by City Architect Jeffera show a structure of horseshoe shape, built of reintorced concrete and briclc with stone trimmings. Tho site chosen tor tho building is the present hay market in First street, which is aorved by tho municipal street railway and is within eaay distance of the Grand Trunk Pacilic, the Canadian Nonliern and the Edinoi�.on. iJunveganAi British Columbia railroads. Tho laat named line Is lindor construction and will servo the north country. I'rovi.sioiis have been made for atorea and oHiccs In the wings ot the building. .\u arcade ontranco will lead lo tho market proper, c.oiiaiating of long rows of stalls, where market g;ir-dencis and growers will be able to display their products and deal directly with tho consumer. It is iirobable that a refrigerating system will be installed In the butter and egg and fowl and meat dejiartments. The buildins will form the first unit of the general market, ,V by-law to provide fund-3 will be submitted lo tlie ratepayers in a short time. Coramisaioner Chalmers, who has charge of the plan, says that when a market is tissurcd the t riicU-growers and dairymen and poultry raisers.will (ollow. The market is to be the c-en-tral point for the entire street, railway system, as well as for all tho tib-urbaii lines on the north side ot the Saskatcliowiiu river. 'I'he suburban roads will become express lines within the city limits, running direct to the central station. This will faollltjite the handling of iiroilucis from tlie suburban communitlea and will be the means of settling the close in districts Many improvemeuta will be carried out in connection with the markei .\. U. -Morrel, of .Minneapolis, who i.s preparing the "city beautiful" lilan lor Kdinouton, has indlea'ed on his diagrams certain section'' that will be ideal for market gardeners. With a niiirkri iu which to .sell thi>ir produce the bii.sine.ss of trucking will become popular and lucrative in and around the city. A member ot the city council will be sent on a tour of the principal clUcs of the United States and Canada to 'study market buildlnga and surroundings, also a.scertaining their patronago and how the transportation problem is handled. Mr. Itobertson, superintendent of the public mai'Ifcl, is enthusiastic over tho jprojo.ct, saying tliat it will pay from the beginning, as there arc already stif-ficiont producers In and near Kdmon-ton to take up all the stalls to be set aaido tor actual growers. Further extension ot municipal own-erehip in Edmonton was indicated when the commlBsioners directed City Kn-giueer Latornel to report upon the cost of installing a paving plant ot not less than 100,000 at), yds. capacity during the building season, iili*) to engage a construction engineer qualified to take charge ot the city's paving work. The plant is to bo In operation early next apring. The estl-, mated cost is $r.0,000. The office of construction engineer is a new one in tho city's service. His duty will be to take charge ot the plant and supervise the paving work. Tho city will comi'ete with prlviite firms in all mouniclpal work, taking contracts to keep the plant running at full capacity throughout the season.' I'Tve hundred thousand square yards of new pavement will he laid by tho city next yciir, as against about '250,000 square yards put down during the season ot 1012.
