p.2 The Dry Dock Question

To the Editor of the Daily News.

Dear Sir, - Alderman Metcalfe seems to have accused Ald. Gaskin at the last meeting of the Council with inconsistency in opposing the Power Dry Dock in the Council and then promising to vote for it when it came before the people. It certainly looks inconsistent if such be the case. He had better explain what he did say in the Council.

p.3 The steamer Pierrepont made a start for the Cape this morning about seven o'clock, reaching it about ten. She went up round the head of the Island, and took some time to get up to the Batteau Channel. The American Channel is quite clear of ice. The Pierrepont started back with a full load of freight, and was expected to reach her dock this afternoon. She will run as long as possible.
