At the Ship Canal. Among the allotments made for permanent improvements on this waterway is $1,200 for a new office for the superintendent and $1,000 for an addition to the residence of the assistant superintendent. Another $2,000 has been set aside for washing down the high sand banks on both sides of the canal, and this is now being pushed forward as rapidly as possible. A steam pump has been placed on the reconstructed dump scow, and with the aid of three men a great deal of work is accomplished in the course of a day. It is intended to beautify the shores by the cultivation of such shrubbery and vegetation as will flourish in this climate. The public at large will applaud this determination on the part of the officials in charge, and it is a question whether a better expenditure of money could be made.
