George Goble Gets Contracts for Two Big Ones.

George Goble, the owner of the Goble drydock, has been awarded the contract for building two new scows for the United States Government to be used n the harbor work in this vicinity. The scows will be sixty-eight feet long, twenty feed wide and have a draught of five feet six inches. They must be delivered within the next six weeks to Resident Engineer Churchill. They will be made of substantial material and can be used for any kind of work desired of them.

In the last few years there have been few boats built in this city, and as a result there is a great scarcity of ship carpenters with few young men learning the trade. The tug Ferris left the drydock yesterday after an overhauling occasioned by the accident to her wheel, and the schooner Keewatin went on this morning. She will be recaulked and will receive general repairs.
