p.3 Buoys - The Harbour Master has had ten new buoys placed in the harbour for the benefit of vessel men, for which no doubt they will be sufficiently thankful.

Graving Dock - Neglectful as Sir John Macdonald is said to be of Kingston's interests, the Government has nevertheless sent up Mr. Wise, a Government engineer, to inspect the harbour and consider the advisability of building a graving dock here. This important public work was solicited by Mr. Metcalfe and Mr. Doran who went down to Ottawa as a deputation some time ago and put the desirability of the matter in a strong light to the Government. We have no doubt that it will be thoroughly looked into and that Kingston will reap the benefit.
