for public use, as a market square on con

alienated by the city. In ioft the act was
amended so the city could use the block for
a market square and for other public pur

partment, city offices and city Jail. '
Now the city has hpught the old govern
ment building for Its city hall and it Is
about to move It city office to that plac.
Apparently the city hs no furthef use
for the ground. But the- state historical
