p.2 The Harbour - The Mayor has received a communication from the Hon. H.L. Langevin C.B. Minister of Public Works, stating that some time ago he sent an officer of his Department to examine certain Dredges belonging to a private individual and ascertain his conditions to dredge Kingston harbour. Mr. Arnoldi has reported that there is a great deal more rock to remove than mud or sand or earth, and that unless a proper survey is made the government would run the risk of squandering the amount of money put at their disposal by Parliament for the harbour. Mr. Langevin has therefore decided to have that survey and a proper report and plan made and he is now taking steps to that effect. If he consider that the Dredge can be usefully employed previous to the survey being completed it will be sent.
