The Harbour Bylaw.

The Council, on motion of Ald. Gaskin, went into Committee of the whole on the bylaw to extend the harbour line, fixing a new line to which the wharves shall be extended - Ald. Irving in the chair.

The Mayor suggested that the extension should be 300 feet until it came to the Queen's Wharf, when it could curve in so that they could accommodate the large vessels which would come through the enlarged Welland Canal.

The bylaw was, after some conversation, passed through Committee. The extension was increased from 240 feet to 300 feet, from the present boundary, at Barrack Street, southward.

The bylaw was then read a third time and passed, and the Council adjourned at 11:30 p.m.
