The steamer Rolph and two barges, coal laden, arrived here today from Erie for Swift & Co. One barge is for the waterworks whose coal is supplied by Swift & Co. The Rolph will enter Davis' dry dock for repairs. These boats were delayed five days on account of some trouble at Erie.
Like To Lease Dock.
It is reported in marine circles that the government dry dock is likely to be secured by the Canadian Locomotive Works company and the Collingwood Shipbuilding company, jointly. The time for tenders does not expire for three weeks or more, but these two companies have been named from the start as likely to take the dock on lease. The locomotive works company could attend to the machinery, and steel repairs and the Collingwood company to the other work.
