The department of public works of the dominion government is calling for tenders for the lease of the Kingston graving dock for a period of twenty-one years. Tenders are to be in on October 11th.

For several years there have been complaints by vessel owners and the Marine Underwriters' Association that the Kingston dock has not the necessary facilities for repairs. Sometimes a vessel is detained from three to seven hours longer than it might if there was a well equipped repair department in connection with the dock. In view of these complaints the public works' department has been led to offer the dock for lease. It is thought that either the Canadian Locomotive Works company or the Collingwood Shipbuilding company will get it.
