A Question About the Dredging at Wolfe Island.

Wolfe Island, Nov. 23rd - To The Editor:

It is a well known fact that the government sent a dredge here to work in the harbor for a period of several weeks for the purpose of deepening the ferry channel for the accommodation of the township as a whole, and the benefit of those in public business, as far as the amount of money set apart for that purpose would extend the work.

As a ratepayer of the township and a supporter of the government, I will ask, was this done and in what way, for the amount of money expended will be charged up to the township by the government for harbor improvement? Was the work justly executed or was it done for private individual benefit? There is dissatisfaction in the township in regard to where the work was done. Will the one who had the work under control kindly explain through the press and oblige. A RATEPAYER.

p.8 Incidents of the Day - The tug Frontenac arrived at noon at the railway wharf and is loading cord wood for Garden Island.

The sloop Laura D. arrived from Wolfe Island with twenty tons of hay and is unloading at the G.T.R. wharf.
