p.2 There are at present 150 men employed on the Sault Ste. Marie Canals. There are about 2,650 yards more of rock excavation to do, some 8,000 yards being already completed, which is claimed as extra work. There remains about 5,000 yards of dredging, including two coffer dams, to complete. The contractors have taken off the slope on the outside of the canal for several hundred feet at the head of the portage, thus affording a much easier access to vessels. It is expected that the work will be in order for the passage of vessels by the opening of navigation.
