DULUTH CANAL. - The canal cutting through Minnesota Point, at Duluth, is being pushed rapidly. A ditch about thirty feet wide and and eight feet deep is already cut three-fourths across the Point, and the huge dredge of Williams & Co. continues to pound away at the sand and gravel, which is being removed by teams and scows and used in filling up the marshy portions of the town. The canal crosses the Point at Portage street, immediately south of the bay dock, striking the lake a few hundred feet below the Citizen's dock.
