The Kingston drydock has not been doing much lately in the way of repairing boats. For the past two weeks, there has only been one boat in the dock and that was for one day. For a time during the early part of the fall the dock people were rushed almost off their feet with orders, and were working some times all night to complete the job on hand in order that the next one could be proceeded with. However, the work is being turned in the direction of the government quarantine boat which the company has the contract for building. The steel work is being put in place and riveted together. A large number of hands are employed, and prospects look good for a busy winter. In the winter the work will all be done inside.

p.7 Stella Happenings - fisherman J. Bray of Big Island stuck on Pigeon Island for 2 days because of storm.
