Record Pumping - A record was made in pumping out the government dry-dock yesterday, the water being all out in an hour and a half. Two boilers did the work. Had some large vessel been in the dock, to have added to her displacement, even quicker time might have been made. It is estimated the dock contains three million gallons of water, which usually takes two hours to pump out.
