p.8 The Civic Committees - At 4:30 o'clock Alds. Wilson, Smith, Muckleston and Hobart, members of the wharves and harbour committee, met to consider the action they should take in reference to the resolution of the Cataraqui Bridge Co., which complained that the K. & P. R.R. company, by extending its dock below the bridge, interfered with navigation. It was contended that the dock had been extended over the harbour line. The city solicitor's letter was read. He recommended that a survey of the waters, near the K. & P. dock, be made in order to determine the harbour line. The members of the committee, after visiting the dock, decided to recommend the council to pass a by-law, fixing the harbour line north-east of the bridge. Harbour Master Smith was authorized to procure a sketch of the shoals approaching the harbour, and forward it to the minister of marine.
