Arrangements for raising the str. Armstrong have been completed. There seem to be brighter prospects of bringing her to the surface without mishap than ever before. The boat lies in the shallow water near the docks at Brockville. Spiles have been driven about her, three on each side at the end and three at each side at the centre. Some idea of how solidly they stand can be gathered from the fact that in driving they went but 1/2 inch at a stroke of the 1,000 pound hammer. Timbers have been placed across resting upon the top of the spiles to which chains from the boat have been attached. Ten jacks are in use. If nothing occurs to mar the plans the workmen will have her riding the surface of the water in a few days.
