Could Not Have The Slip - It seems that in June, 1898, the city property committee did ask city engineer Bolger to prepare a plan for converting the waterworks slip into a bathing resort, but the committee did not meet again until October and the matter was dropped. Objections were made by the waterworks committee to have to having bathers about the waterworks property. Further, the slip is leased to the Donnelly wrecking company.
