It was approximately estimated that the co*t of carrying out the whole of these works would be £30,000.

Mr. Deal, in moving the adoption of the report, said altering the time hid mrrived when (omething ihould b* don* in the interest* of the port towards providing incremsed accommodation, he drew out some rough 'lana of what he considered necestary, and the surveyor i*4 aloce prepared (he plsns which were now before he Boari'.
