At The Wreck - Operations at the Armstrong are again almost at a standstill. The heavy gale of Friday so wrecked the heavy timbers, upon which the hydraulic jacks are worked, that when a strain was put on them on Saturday they gave way and work had to be stopped. It has not been definitely decided what to do, but it is likely that very long timbers will be secured that will reach across the two vessels. Men are engaged in removing the old timbers. If it had not been for the storm the Armstrong would, by this time, have been ready for pumping out.
