Ald. Gokey made short work in raising the wreck of the schooner Coquette, and completed the job yesterday by towing the hulk on to the beach below the east pier. The croakers said he would have to abandon the job or loose money. He has done neither.
If there is to be any question as to the liability of crafts for damage done to the bridge, would it not be well for the city to adopt the plan carried out in the Welland canal and other cities: seize the craft that does the damage and hold her until the bills are paid. It works like a charm in other places, and why not here?
