REPORT 

l'F THE 

DEPUTY MINISTER OF PUBLIC WORKS 

FOR THE 

FISCAL YEAR ENDED MARCH 31, 1918. 


Department of Public Works, Canada. 


I Ion. F. B. Cakvell, 

Minister of Public Works, 
Ottawa, Ont. 


Ottawa, November 1, 1918. 


Sir, — I have the honour to submit the report of operations of the Department 
of Public Works during the fiscal year ended March 31, last. 


expenditure. 


The total expenditure made by or through the department during the fiscal 
year 1917-18, on its various works of construction, maintenance, and operation, 
amounted to the sum of $14,055,207.70. The details of this amount are classified 
under the following heads 


Harbour and river works 
Dredging, plant, etc . . 

Slides and booms 

Roads and bridges 

Public buildings 

Telegraphs 

Miscellaneous 


$ 5,551,773 97

751,451 -4S 
419,004 60 


Total 


$14,055,207 70 


The department has carefully adhered during- the year under review to the 
policy of retrenchment which has been followed since the outbreak of the war, 
with the result that the aggregate outlay this year is $2,106,388.50 less than that 
of the preceding year; and $15,228,109.12 less than the expenditure three years ago. 
The parliamentary grant for this year was $9,914,057.70 less than that for the year 
1916-17 and will be further substantially reduced for the year 1918-19.

REVENUE. 


9 GEORGE V, A. 1919 


The revenue for the year amounted to the sum of $421,491.84. and is made up 
as follows : — 


Slides and booms 4 26.1S7 92 

Graving docks 56.484 16 

Rents 106.205 1# 

Telegraphs 204,877 4 3 

Casual revenue 27.737 23 


Total.. ., $421,491 84 


It will be noted that there is a decrease of $71,768.17 from last year's figures, 
which is practically the difference in the returns from slides and booms. The other 
items of revenue while showing fluctuation from the preceding year have aggre- 
gated about the same amount. The great decrease in slides and booms revenue is 
attributable to the new arrangement made last, year whereby the St. Mauritce slides 
and booms system was leased to the St. Maurice River Boom and Driving Company, 
Limited, from the first of April, 1917, at a rental of $1 per annum. The company 
was to collect the rates of tolls established by Order in Council, and after defraying 
the cost of maintenance and operation was to pay over the surplus there might be of 
revenue over expenditure. When this system was operated direct by the depart- 
ment, the practice was not to charge the cost of maintenance and operation against 
the revenue, but to defray expenditures from certain special appropriations granted 
for that purpose and return the entire collections as revenue. No payment has so far 
been made by the company under the existing agreement but, in any event, the 
change of method by which all expenditure is now deducted from revenue is bound 
to show a very substantial decrease in the latter. 

Reference was made last year to the particularly small returns from the Ottawa 

River district. This year the collections were $9,904.38 more than the previous year, 

» 

and the number of sawlogs 1,059,364 more than last year; the increase being due to 
the large quantity of logs from tributaries coming out which had been hung up the 
previous year. 

HARBOUR AND RIVER WORKS. 

The total expenditure in this branch of the Department of Publio Works was 
$5,551,773.97, of which $4,097,211.58 was charged to capital and $1,454,562.39 to 
income. This is almost one million dollars less than lust year’s outlay. 

The following is a list of works which have been completed during the year: — 

Nova Scotia . — East River — River improvements nnd lock. 

New Brunswick . — Small landings at Bass river, Moulies river, and St. Nicholas 
river. 

( ,hirbir . — St. Zotique — Small icebreaker. 

Ontario. Desbarats, small landing: Fort William, quay walls, Kingston harbour 
improvements, and Port Arthur idle protection breakwater. 

British Columbia . — Sea Otter cove, small landing, Steveston jetty, second section 
at mouth of Fraser river, nnd Victoria breakwater. 

The following works were under contract but unfinished at the end of the 
fiscal year: — 

New Brunswick. St, John Courtenay bay, harbour improvements.

SESSIONAL PAPER No. 19 

Quebec. — Laprairie dyke, Rimouski harbour improvements, River St. Charles 
improvements, and the Champlain dry dock at 1 .auzon . 

Ontario. — Port Stanley extension to western breakwater and Toronto harbour works. 

British Columbia. — Vancouver, shed on west side of wharf, and Victoria, wharves 
and shed. 

DREDGING. 

The expenditure under this head amounted to $1,405,838.16. a decrease of 
$1,004,575.08 from that of the preceding year. 

There were seventeen units of the departmental dredging plant not in commis- 
sion during the fiscal year 1917-18. This released several Public W orks tugs, and 
advantage was taken of this fact to place them at the disposal of the departments 
of the Government in need of such vessels; the Naval Service Department making 
use of the steamer Speedy, tugs Helena, Canso and Sir John: and the Customs 
Department making use of the tug Canso prior to this vessel having been taken 
over by the Naval Department. 

The expenditure on the plant has been kept as low as possible, consistent with 
economic efficiency, and no new plant has been acquired or constructed. The out- 
lay on contract dredging amounted to only $53,359.07. 

The dredging of the channel in the East riv'er, Pictou harbour, Nova Scotia, was 
completed. This work has been under way by dredge P. IT. D., No. 5 (Northumber- 
land) since 1908, and the work has involved the removal of 2,972,228 cubic yards. 

A channel has been completed in the Saguenay river, giving a least depth of 
10 feet and a width of 2'50-feet from the foot of the battures to Chicoutimi. 

A satisfactory commencement has been made in removing shoal patches and 
points, which have been a source of danger to navigation in the main channel of the 
St. Lawrence river in Lake St. Louis. 

This season saw the practical completion of the West Fort turning basin of the 
Kaministiquia river, at Fort William. The improvement of this harbour by dredg- 
ing, to the extent planned, is expected to be finished next season. 

The work at Port Arthur harbour during this season consisted in easing the 
entrance to the Government elevator slip; widening the main harbour south; widen- 
ing the King’s channel; completing the Saskatchewan Co-Operative and Grain 
Growers’ slip and commencing the Richardson’s elevator slip. 

The close of the year has seen the completion of the widening and deepening 
of the channel through the First narrows to Vancouver harbour, and the removal of 
Parthia shoal; there is now a least depth of 35 feet over the First Narrows channel 
and Parthia shoal, and a least width of 1,200 feet in the channel, which had a width 
of 450 feet and a depth of 30 feet when the work was commenced in December, 1911. 
To effect this improvement has involved the removal of 4,139.260 cubic yards. 

At Nanaimo, work has been carried on since 1914. By the removal of Rocky shoals 
the harbour has been greatly improved; no further work being required for presently 
prospective navigation. 

'Phis season saw the completion of the improvement, by dredging, of Victoria 
harbour. The Rocky shoals obstructing the free passage of the vessels have been 
removed so that there now exists in the inner harbour the safe depth of 20 feet, wdiieh 
is expected to lie sufficient for the accommodation of shipping for some time.

PEPARTMEST OF PUBLIC WORKS 


9 GEORGE V, A. 1919 

Special reports, to the number of thirty-one, were forwarded during: the year to 
the Departments of Marine and of the Naval Service, so that mariners might be kept 
acquainted by means of alterations of charts and notices to mariners with such work 
as has been accomplished. 

Dredging operations were also carried on at the followiuig places, where an 
expenditure of $10,000 or over was made 

Nova Scotia. — Liverpool. 

Prince Edward Inland. — Bridgetown, and Rustico South. 

New Brunswick. — Bathurst, Campbellton, St. John channel, St. John West, and 
Shippigan. 

Quebec. — lie aux Foins, Longueuil, Mission Point, and River St. Maurice. 

Ontario. — Byng inlet, Hamilton, Midland. Port Burwell, and Port Stanley. 

.Manitoba. — Red river and Selkirk Slough. 

British Columbia. — Fraser river (North Arm and Sandheads) and Skeena river. 

PUBLIC BUILDINGS. 

The sum expended on construction, maintenance and repairs of public buildings 
throughout the Dominion was $5,843,288.72, which is approximately the amount which 
was expended during the previous fiscal year. Of this amount. $2,674,855.88 was 
expended in the construction and improvement of public buildings; and $3,168,432.84 
in repairs and maintenance. 

The following buildings were completed during the year: — 

Quebec. — Quebec post office — Minor works were executed to complete the main 
contract. Partitions were erected to form offices for the Military Service Act officials. 
Installation of tower clock and post office fittings. 

Ontario. — Kingston — Erection of gymnasium at Royal Military College. Trenton — 
Alterations and additions to post office and post office fittings and new floor in lobby. 

Manitoba. — Winnipeg — Alterations to Immigration Hall for Postal Station “ A.” 

Saskatchewan . — Regina — Alterations to Royal Bank building and Customs Express 
building. 

The following buildings were still under contract at the close of the fiscal year: — 

Nova Scotia. — Halifax barracks on north common. 

Quebec. — Three Rivers public building. 

Ontario. — Ottawa Parliament buildings. 

Alberta. — Calgary drill hall. 

Owing to the shortage of anthracite coal last winter, in order to conserve this 
class of fuel as much as possible and with a view to setting an example to large private 
users the dopartincnt made changes in many of the furnaces in public buildings situ- 
ated in the Maritime Provinces and in the West so that local or bituminous coal 
might be used for heating. In this way, a very considerable quantity of anthracite 
coal was saved for domestic consumption. The results in the public buildings were 
generally satisfactory, although the soft coal required much closer attention and more 
careful firing than the anthracite. 

The department was very fortunate in not having much damage done to the 
public buildings in the city of Halifax when the terrible explosion took place in the 
harbour on the 6th of December, 1917. Outside the roof of the drill hall being

wrecked, the post office and Customs buildings suffered only from broken windows and 
temporary dislocation of portion? of the heating apparatus all of which was promptly 
repaired. 

RECONSTRUCTION OF PARLIAMENT BUILDINGS, OTTAWA. 

The progress made with the reconstruction of the Parliament buildings during 
the past year has been exceptional, and it may safely be said that a record has been 
set in its rapid construction. At the same time, the work is of the highest quality, in 
keeping with a national undertaking of this character. 

On April 2, general building operations were resumed for the season of 1917, the 
masonry of the interior walls on the Senate wing being two storeys high, and an 
average of four feet above ground level for the balance of the building. 

When masonry work was discontinued on December 18, 1917, all exterior and 
court walls had been completed to the main cornice or roof level; leaving the stone 
work of the four north ventilating towers, the front pavilions, the chimneys and the 
pent-houses above the roof to complete the exterior masonry. 

The maim tower was not proceeded with last year, the contractor devoting his 
energies to getting the building under roof before winter. 

Structural steel-work, which was well started at the opening of 1917, has been 
completed, excepting minor sections such as pavilion and tower roofs, miscellaneous 
beams for stair landings, etc. 

The sloping roofs are being constructed of Flex-or-Crete, a fireproof concrete nail- 
ing composition, while the flat roofs or decks are of terra-cotta arch tile. These slop- 
ing roofs have been completed with the exception of the Commons roof, which could 
not be placed on account of the early frost, while the roofs of the towers and pavilions 
cannot be constructed till the masonry walls of same are finished. 

The terra-cotta arching of the flat roofs has been set, and the placing of the copper 
and tar and gravel roof covering will be proceeded with as weather conditions permit. 

The setting of the terra-cotta arches for the floors of the building was commenced 
September 25, 1917, and approximately 80 per cent of this work has been completed. 

The excavation for the foundations of the central heating plant is well advanced, 
and the concrete foundations for the north wall of this building have been placed. 

Labour conditions have been generally satisfactory, the average daily force on 
this work for the year 1917 being 495 men. 

During 1917, there were fourteen meetings of the Joint Parliamentary Commit- 
tee and fifteen meetings of the board on the reconstruction work ; also meetings of the 
Speakers, Senators, and Chairmen of the House Committees to discuss the general 
works of this building and arrangement of accommodation. 

The expenditure on the work to March 31, 1918, amounted to $2,774,873.18. 

In addition to the contracts mentioned in last year's report, the P. Lyall & Sons 
Construction Company, Limited, as general contractors for this work have, with the 
approval of the Joint Parliamentary Committee, entered into the following sub-con- 
tracts since the first of April, 1917 : — 

On April 25, 1917, the board authorized a contract for sand with It. R. Foster, 
Ottawa, Out., for 5,584 cubic yards of sand at 77 J cents per cubic yard.

NATIONAL GALLERY. 

The National Gallery being still without premises for the exhibition of its 
national collection of works of art, has continued to concentrate its energies upon the 
development of its policy of loan exhibitions to any art gallery or body which has 
proper facilities for exhibiting them, and it is believed that this policy is having a 
direct and important bearing upon the establishment of schools of art and desigif 
throughout the country. Its popularity is evidenced by the rapidly increasing appli- 
cation for these exhibitions, and without new purchases it will shortly become impos- 
sible to meet all requests. 

Regular annual loans of works of art were sent out during the year to St. John, 
N.B., Sherbrooke, Que., Fort William, Ont., Winnipeg, Man., Regina and Moosejaw, 
Sask. ; and special exhibitions were arranged for Halifax, N.S., Montreal, Que., Art 
Association, Ottawa-Central Canada Exhibition, Toronto Art Museum, and Western 
Canada Fair Association, the circuit including Calgary, Edmonton, Brandon, Regina, 
Saskatoon, and Prince Albert, also Vancouver, B.C. Twenty oil paintings were pur- 
chased from Canadian artists during the year. 

Appended to this report will be found detailed reports from the different branches 
giving full particulars of the various works carried out by this department during 
the year.

NOVA SCOTIA. 

CHESTER BASIN. 

Dredging. 

Chester Basin is a small town situated on the H. & S. W. railway on the shore of 
Chester basin. 

During the fiscal year 1917-18, dredge No. 15 was in operation at this place. The 
work, which is the first done here, consisted of cutting a channel from the main channel 
in to the wharves, and dredging a channel along the front of the wharves for harbour- 
age accommodation. 

The area covered was 18,000 square feet, with an average cutting of 6-3 feet, 
giving an average depth at low water of 10 feet. The channel in to the wharves has 
a length of 170 feet and an average width of 44 feet, and the channel along the front 
of the wharves has a length of 218 feet and an average width of 48 feet. The material 
removed consisted of mud and gravel, with a place measurement of 4,200 cubic yards, 
and scow measurement of 5,570 cubic yards, showing an expansion factor of 32-6 per 
cent. Dredge No. 15 worked here from September 24 to Nov. 14. 

CLEMENTSPORT. 

Dredging. 

Clementsport, Annapolis county, is a village situated on either side of the mouth 
of Moose river, on the eastern side of Annapolis basin. 

In 1917-18, 5,182 cubic yards, place measurement, were removed, at a cost of 
$2,110.70, from the left or south side of the channel immediately below the railway 
bridge. The work was begun on 3rd September and finished 24th November, 1917. 
It was all done by hand digging, at low water, the material being thrown on to a scow 
towed out about a mile to deep water, and dumped. 

The digging is comprised within a total length of 600 feet by a maximum width 
of 100 feet ; the depth of cut varies from 4 feet to 5 feet and the bottom of the cut is 
6 feet above L.W.O.S.T., or 21 feet below H.W.O.S.T. 

The excavated area will fill up by deposit of silt at a slow rate and should not 
require redredging for six or eight years.

9 GEORGE V, A. 1919 

Work was done at this place during the year 1917-18, by dredge No. 15, and is 
the first dredging done here by the department. A channel was taken out on each 
side of the wharf so that better accommodation would be available. The area covered 
was 4,500 square feet with an average cutting of 3J feet, giving an average depth of 
6 feet below low water. The channel on the north side of the wharf has a length of 
100 feet and a width of 30 feet, and the channel on the south side has a length of 50 
feet with a width of 30 feet. The material removed consisted of mud and bricks. 
Place measurement, 590 cubic yards. The dredge was engaged here from November 
17 to 27. 

EAST MIDDLE LA HAVE. 

Dredging. 

East Middle La Have is a small farming and fishing district on the east side of 
the La Have river, about 9 miles from Bridgewater. 

The work done by dredge No. 15 during the fiscal year 1917-18, consisted of the 
cutting of a basin in front of a wharf for the better landing of the steam packet which 
runs on the La Have river between Bridgewater and the several small villages on the 
river. 

The area covered was 8,000 square feet with an average cutting of 4 feet, giving 
an average depth of 5 feet at L.W.O.S.T. The basin has a length of 110 feet and a 
width of 80 feet. The material removed consisted of inud and gravel, the place 
measurement being 1,200 cubic yards and the scow measurement 1,558 cubic yards, 
showing an expansion factor of 30 per cent. The dredge worked here from September 
4 to September 18. 


EAST RIVER. 

(This work is described in the annual report for 1915.) 

East river is the most easterly of the three branches of Pictou harbour. It 'is 
navigable for small vessels from opposite Pictou to the town of New Glasgow. 

During the fiscal year 1917-18, the contract let to Messrs. McDougal Bros, was 
practically completed, the only work still to be done consists of binding several of the 
dolphins with J-inch wire cable. The work consisted of unwatering, common and 
rock excavation, and timber approach piers. 

In September, 1917, Messrs. Roger Miller & Sons, Ltd., finished their contract for 
the lock gates and operating machinery. The total expenditure on these two contract 
works amounted to $583,230.35. 


Dredging. 

The East river is tin- most important of the three branches of Pictou Harbour. 
Since the inception of the work in 1908, the department hydraulic dredge No. 6 was 
employed, and the total amount removed to date is 2,972,228 cubic yards of clay, sand, 
gravel and shells. A detailed description of the whole project to that date is given on 
page 24 of the annual reiwrt for 1915. 

During the past season, the dredge operated from June 23 to November 2, and 
excavated 290,700 cubic yards measured in situ. The material was principally soft 
alluvial clay with occasional areas of harder material near grade. The cutting was 
dredged to a depth of 21 feet below L.W.O.S.T. and to a width of 150 feet from 
stations 34+00 to stations 80+00 with the exception of some hard material between 
station 65+50 and 67+50 which the dredge could not remove. 

This material consists of 2,400 cubic yards in situ, or 3,120 scow measurement, of 
tenacious clay that will require n dipper dredge to excavate. This, in addition to some 


REPORT OF THE CHIEF ENGINEER

SESSIONAL PAPER No. 19 

overlying soft material not removed by the dredge, will make a total of 5,620 cubic- 
yards scow measurement to be dredged from that area. 

In the second reach, station 120+00 to station 239+00 there yet remains 369,000 
cubic yards of sedimentation to be removed from the cutting made in previous years. 

INVERNESS. 

Dredging. 

Inverness, Inverness county, is an incorporated mining town situated on the north- 
western coast of Cape Breton island, about midway between the harbours of Mabou 
and Margaree, and 60 miles from Port Hastings, on the strait of Canso, with which 
it is connected by rail. 

In April, 1917, the fishermen of Inverness asked the department for a channel 
across the beach, 15 feet wide in the bottom, and with a depth of one foot of water 
at low water or 5 feet at high water, to permit them to pass in and out of the harbour 
at least at half tide, but the channel asked for would extend beyond the protection of the 
eastern breakwater for a distance of 175 feet, and in order to protect this dredged 
channel, it was absolutely necessary to extend the eastern breakwater for that distance. 

Instructions were received to excavate the channel; operations were commenced 
July 10, 1917, and continued when weather conditions permitted, until September 25, 
when the work was suspended. 

The depth required was obtained throughout the length of the channel during the 
progress of the work, but the heavy seas washed the floating sand back into the channel, 
and on 26th September, when the final examination was made, it was found that the 
channel had an average depth of 1-2 feet above low water instead of one foot beloiv low 
water; and as spring tides rise here 4 feet instead of having a depth of 5 feet at high 
water, as proposed, there were hardly 3 feet of water at that stage of the tide, and it 
will continue to shoal up until the channel is protected. 

The amount of material removed on completion was found to be 3,155 cubic yards 
in place, without taking into consideration the amount of material removed and washed 
back into the cut. 

The work was done by horses and scrapers. 


LIVERPOOL. 

Dredging. 

Liverpool is a town situated at the mouth of the Mersey river. During the past 
fiscal year, dredge No. 7 removed 46,610 cubic yards, scow measurement. Work was 
commenced June 11, 1917, moved to Shelburne in September, and moved back to 
Liverpool, October 17, and continued operations until November 30, 1917. 

From the bridge towards the mouth of the harbour for a distance of 1,110 feet, the 
nature of the material to be removed consists of mud and sawdust. For a further 
distance outwards of 1,0,34 feet the material consists of mud and sawdust mixed with 
fine white hard sand. In the last 1,089 feet of this channel, the bottom is composed 
entirely of fine, hard, white sand extremely difficult to remove with a ladder dredge. 
This dredging has been performed to a depth of 15 feet at L.W.O.S.T. 

The bulk of the material removed during the last fiscal year came from that 
portion of the channel starting opposite the end of the marine slip and continuing' 
seaward as far as the black buoy. A few scow loads at the latter end of the season 
were removed from the upper portion of the harbour at its northern side! This latter 
part of the work was 400 feet long and 100 feet wide, the main portion of the dredging 
over the bar had a common width of 150 feet and a length of about 1,750 feet to a 
depth of 15 feet at L.W.O.S.T.

Included in the above is the amount of dredging performed in improving a 
branch channel for the accommodation of new vessels which require launching, 1,200 
cubic yards of mud and sawdust, scow measurement, were removed on June 22 and 
23, a large portion of which has since filled up. 

This branch channel was about 120 feet in length, 50 feet wide, with an average 
cut of 5 feet. 


PARKS CREEK. 

Dredging. 

Parks creek (Conrads') is on the east side of the La Have river, about 12 miles 
from Bridgewater. 

During the fiscal year 1917-1918, dredge No. 15 worked at this place, cutting a 
channel into the wharf to give better accommodation for boats of deeper draught and 
to enable the steam packet La Have to make a landing. The area covered was 8.400 
square feet with an average cutting of 4-3, giving an average depth at low water of 
10 feet. The channel has an average length of 120 feet and an average width of 70 
feet. The material taken out consisted of mud and small boulders, the place measure- 
ment being 1,338 cubic yards and the scow measurement 1.739 yards, showing an 
expansion factor of 30 per cent. 

The dredge was employed from August 10 to August 30. 

st. peters narrows. 

Dredging. 

St. Peters narrows, Richmond county, are situated on the southern end of the 
Bras d'Or lakes, and, together with the St, Peters canal, form the connecting link for 
navigation between the lakes and the Atlantic ocean on the south. 

Owing to the crookedness and narrowness of the navigable channel between the 
islands forming the narrows, the vessels approaching and leaving the canal from and 
for the Bras d’Or lakes, were frequently delayed by high winds in the channel, and in 
order to avoid dangers and delays, it was deemed advisable to improve the navigation 
through the narrows by widening and straightening the navigable channel at the worst 
points, and to deepen it to 18 feet at low lake level, which is the depth available in 
the canal. 

The full scheme for the improvement of navigation in the narrows, involved the 
removal of 96,190 cubic yards in place at different points, but owing to the large 
amount of work to be done to effect, the whole improvement, it was deemed advisable 
to remove, at present, only the most dangerous points, which were between the south- 
eastern end of Beaver island and the mainland. 

The contract for the improvement of the channel involving the removal of 30,723 
cubic yards of mud and clay in place, off two points, and over an area of about 118,700 
square feet, was awarded to the Coastal Dredging and Construction Company of 
Sydney, N.S., at the rate of 28 cents per cubic yard in place. 

Operations were commenced May 2, 1917, and completed in a very satisfactory 
manner and in accordance with the terms and spirit of the contract on 12th July 
following. 

The full depth of 18 feet at low lake level in a width of 400 feet, in the bottom, 
was obtained, and the ninouut of material removed was found to be ns follows:

SHELBURNE. 

Dredging. 

Shelburne is a town situated 70 miles northeast of Yarmouth and about 110 miles 
southwest of Halifax. 

During the last fiscal year, dredge No. 7 removed 4,780 cubic yards, scow measure- 
ment, of material from portions of the upper part of Shelburne harbour. Work was 
commenced on September 24 and completed October 17, 1917. The dredging consisted 
of the removal of mud and some small rocks from the channel and approach to the 
McKay shipyard, situated at the extreme head of the harbour. The length of the 
cutting was 445 feet, the portion opposite the launchway being 100 feet long by 150 
feet wide, whilst the remaining 335 feet in length was 50 feet width. Different 
portions of this channel and approach were dredged to a depth varying from 5 feet to 
8 feet at L.W.O.S.T. The depth obtained was the greatest that could be practically 
gotten in the different sections, owing to fact that absolute hard rock bottom lies 
immediately underneath, but dredging was done in the channel opposite wharf of I,. 
Clow; the frontage between his place and G. A. Cox’s wharf; opposite Mr. Cox’s 
wharves ; and, at the request of the Shelburne Ship Builders, Ltd., tried to assist that 
enterprise by dredging in front of their shipyard; here we found an absolute ledge 
of rock after we had succeeded in removing about 80 yards of round cobble stones. 
The material in these latter places, from Clow’s wharf to the Shelburne Ship Builders 
yard consisted of a hard clay formation, interspersed with small rocks varying in size 
from a diameter of three inches to one foot. Below this stratum, which in no place 
exceeded a foot in thickness, we found soft mud, but with the ladder dredge it was 
particularly difficult to penetrate the top stratum. 

WEST DUBLIN. 

Dredging. 

West Dublin is an important fishing and fanning district in Lunenburg county, 
about 14 miles from Bridgewater on the west side and near the mouth of the La Have 
river. 

During the fiscal year 1916-17, the departmental dredge No. 15 removed 1,956 
cubic yards scow measurement or 1,505 yards place measurement showing an expan- 
sion factor of 30 per cent. The work consisted of dredging a channel along the front 
of the wharves about 275 feet in length, having an average width of 30 feet. 

During the fiscal year 1917-18, the work consisted of the cutting of a channel by 
dredge No. 15, from deep water into and along the front of the wharves. The area 
covered was 15,400 square feet, with an average cutting 34 feet, giving an average 
depth at low water of 4J feet. The channel has a length of 376 feet and an average 
width of 41 feet. The material consisted of niucl, the place measurement removed 
being 1,985 cubic yards and scow measurement. 2,S81 yards, giving an expansion factor 
of 30 per cent. The total cost in this fiscal year was $1,345.94, the. dredge working here 
from July 9 to August 4. 

YARMOUTH. 

(This work is described in the annual report for 1915.) 

Yarmouth Bar. Yarmouth harbour, lies about NNE. and SSW. (true), and from 
the upper wharves to the mouth of the harbour is nearly 4 miles. 

In 1917-18, the sum of $553.37 was expended in minor repairs to a number of 
places in the 1,700 feet in length of beach protection, damaged by storms.

In 1917-18, the dredge Canada, No. 7, removed 815 cubic yards, scow measure- 
ment, 049 cubic yards, place measurement, towed 24 miles. The .work done consists 
in the widening of the turning berth opposite the Evangeline wharf, belonging to tbe 
D. A. Ry., at which the Boston steamers lie. Dredging was begun 7th January, and 
stopped 19th January, 1918, owing to ice conditions, which were unprecedentedly 
severe. 

The dredging was comprised within a maximum length of 200 feet, by a maxi- 
mum width of 50 feet; the maximum depth of cut was about 20 feet and the bottom 
of the cutting had a varying depth below L.W.O.S.T. of a maximum of 18 feet. 


PRINCE EDWARD ISLAND. 


ALBERTO*. 

Dredging. 

(This work is described in the annual report for 1915.) 

The village of Alberton, Prince Albert county, is situated on the northeast coast 
of the island at Cascumpeque harbour, about 55 miles by rail from Summerside. 

While a depth of 10 feet at low water was carried on channel face of the wharf, 
the area immediately inward of the pierhead was available only for very small boats, 
being about dry at low tide. In order to provide further shipping accommodation the 
forming of berths on either side at the outer end of the wharf was authorized, each to 
have a length of 185 feet and average width of SO feet, grading in depth from 10 feet 
up to 5 feet at their inner end at low water spring tides. Work was commenced Nov- 
ember 3 by D. P. W. dredge No. 11 and when suspended, November 20, a berth had 
been formed on the southern side of the wharf immediately inward of the southern 
“ L”; it has a length of 90 feet and width of about 75 feet carrying an average depth 
of 7 feet at low water spring tides, providing sufficient protection and shelter for 
wintering the plant in safety. 

The quantity of material removed between the above dates was 2,200 cubic yards, 
scow, and 1.500 cubic yards, place measurement, of overcasting, which consisted princi- 
pally of mud and hard sand, all overcasting being dredged and scowed away. 


BEACH POINT. 

Dredging. 

Beach point. Kings county, is situated on the south side of tbe entrance into Mur- 
ray harbour. From the “point” a sand and mud spit, which is dry nt low water, 
extends in a westerly direction along the edge of the channel n distance of about one 
mile and encloses between it and the shore a basin having a depth of from 14 to 3 
feet nt low water, nffording good shelter and anchorage for fishing boats. To make 
this shelter available nt all stages of the tide, a small channel was dredged during sen- 
sons of 1904 and 1905 from the deep water outside into the basin n distance of nbout 
400 feet. As this chnnnel lias been found inadequate, further dredging improvements 
were commenced by “ D.P.W.” dredge No. 0 August 20 and carried on until Nov- 
embi'i 3, when orders were received to take up winter qunrters. During this period, 
12,008 cubic yards, scow, and 13,600 cubic yards place measurement overensting of 
sand and mud were removed; practically nil of the overcasting being redredged and 
scowed away. 

The improvements undertaken consist of forming a new channel to carry 7 feet 
nt low' wnter -pring tides about 400 feet to the westward of the old cut and having a

total length of 950 feet, including turning basin at inner end, 250 feet in length, 
parallel to the shore; the width of approach from deep water to the basin being from 
60 to 65 feet. When operations were suspended, November 3, about 400 feet of the 
approach was completed to the depth required. 

BRIDGETOWN. 

Dredging. 

(This work is described in the annual report for 1916.) 

The village of Bridgetown is situated at the head of navigation on the Grand or 
Boughton river, Kings county. 

Work was commenced May 21, 1917, and carried on continuously until July 28 
when satisfactorily completed; the quantity of material removed was 33,700 cubic 
yards, scow measurement, of principally soft mud. The improvements made covering 
the three seasons involving the removal of 57,600 cubic yards, consisted of deepening 
and straightening the channel from about 1,200 feet below Robertson’s creek up to the 
wharves just below the village a distance of 5,050 feet, the width of cut being 70 feet 
with exception of the upper 500 feet which was made 100 feet wide to form a turning 
basin. The average depth carried over all the work on completion was 9 feet at low 
water spring tides, which here have a range of 5 feet, 

MCPHERSON’S COVE. 

(This w'ork is described in the annual report for 1916.) 

McPherson’s cove, Kings county, is situated on the south side of the Grand or 
Boughton river, a short distance within its entrance into Boughton bay. 

During the past season some slight settlement caused by storms to the roadway 
approach was made up with broken stone; commenced work September 22, and com- 
pleted 29. 

Dredging. 

To facilitate shipments some improvement has recently been made in size and 
depth of berths on each side of the pierhead, D.P.W. dredge No. 9 working from July 
30 to August 8, removing in that time 4,100 cubic yards, scow measurement, of mud. 
During progress of work, it was necessary to overcast 400 cubic yards, place measure- 
ment, in order to obtain flotation for the plant; this material being afterwards 
redredged and scowed away. The work done consisted in cleaning up shipping berths 
on either side of the pierhead, each berth having a length of 100 feet; their entrance 
being “ bellmouthed ” to a width of 90 feet in line with outer end of wharf, thence 
narrowing down to 30 feet at inner end; the depth made grading from 10 feet up to 
7i feet at low water spring tides. 


RUSTICO. 

(This work is described in the annual report for 1909.) 

Rustico harbour is situated on the north coast of Prince Edward Island, about 
midway between North point and East point, and 9 miles northerly by road from 
Hunter river, the nearest station on line of the Prince Edward Island railway. 

Some strengthening of the beach protection work, situated immediately within 
the harbour entrance near the back range light, was commenced August 7, satisfac- 
torily completed September 15, and consisted of driving twenty piles along the channel 
face of the work and making up some small settlement which had occurred in the 
brush and stone filling.

RUST! CO. 

Dredging. 

Owing to the shoal depth of water carried over the greater portion of Gauthier’s 
creek, only the smallest class of fishing boats could reach the village at low water. In 
order to make the head of the creek accessible at all stages of the tide, improvements 
of the channel approach thereto were commenced by the departmental dredge No. 11, 
October 26, 1916, but shortly afterwards suspended owing to the plant being ordered 
into winter quarters. Operations were, however, resumed again May 31, 1917, and 
carried through to a satisfactory completion, October 17; the quantity of material 
removed during this time was 29,275 cubic yards, scow measurement, of principally 
mud, sand, and brick clay. To facilitate the working of the plant in front of the 
fishing stages at upper end of cut it was necessary to overcast 3,080 cubic yards, 
place measurement, of mud, about half of which being afterwards redredged and 
seowed away. 

The work done covering the two seasons consisted of forming a channel through 
the flats from point where abandoned in 1891 up to a small basin near the fishing 
stages below the village. This channel has a length of 2,350 feet and width of 60 feet, 
carrying on completion 8 feet at low water spring tides. 

Improvement was also made in depth of water along the outer end of fishing 
stages located at the head of the creek for a distance of 500 feet, the depth now avail- 
able being not less than 41 feet oil any stage; while the turning basin adjoining was 
enlarged and deepened to an average of 7 feet at low water spring tides. 

Included in the above quantity is 700 cubic yards, scow, and 300 cubic yards, 
place measurement, overcasting, of hard sand, removed to form berths for small vessels 
in front of a beach protection work 200 feet in length, situated just within the harbour 
entrance. The dredge was employed at this work from July 17 to 20; the depth made 
being 9 feet at low water spring tides. 

Some silting in may be expected from time to time, particularly in front of the 
stages where the material excavated was very soft. 

Before the dredge left Rustico authority was given to clean up the area in front 
of Mr. Joseph Gallant’s wharf, which is situated about 2J miles in a southwesterly 
direction from the harbour entrance at the village of Rusticoville. The dredge oper- 
ated here four days, October 23 to 26, removing 700 cubic yards, scow measurement, 
of mud and sand. The berth formed has a length of 150 feet and average width of 40 
feet, carrying a depth of 8 feet at low water spring tides. 


NEW BRUNSWICK. 

BASS RIVER. 

The Bass river is a small tributary of the Richihucto from the west, and enters 
the latter about 20 miles about its mouth. 

Between the 10th and 16th July, 1917. a small landing wharf was built at Bass 
river at the head of navigation and about 3 miles above its junction with the RichU 
bugto. 

The landing is constructed of cribwork 8 feet wide with a frontage of 75 feet and 
wings extending shorewards 25 feet nt each end. The interior is filled ami surfaced 
with ballast and earth and behind the landing an area about 75 to 42 feet wide and 
extending back about 100 feet to high ground was graded with 2 to 3 feet of brush and 
about H feet of earth. The lower side 1 of this area was protected by a single face 
timber laid over sills and with several short cross-ties on top embedded in the fill.

Bathurst, the shire town of Gloucester county, is situated on the south shore of 
Chaleur bay. 

On the main or Nipisiguit channel, about 3-6 miles long from the harbour entrance 
to the berth and turning basin at the pulp mill, the required width of cut is 200 feet, 
increased to 300 and 350 feet at the turns, and depth 17 feet at low water. 

The turning basin and berth together will have an average width of 450 feet, 
length of 900 feet and depth of 21 feet at low water. 

Dredging is also required in the branch channel at the Gloucester Lumber and 
Trading Company’s and the Geo. Eddy Company’s wharves where the proposed cut is 
100 feet wide, 2,000 feet long and 12 feet deep at low water; and in the middle river 
channel about one mile long past the Bathurst Lumber Company’s wharves in Bathurst 
village to the departmental wharf, where 15 feet at low water is required. 

The cut across the outer bar is about 1 • 7 miles long of which the greater part has 
been dredged to the required width of 200 feet and depth of 17 feet at low water. On 
this section and also in the main channel inside the harbour a final depth of 25 feet 
at low water is called for. 

Dredge PAV.D. No. 2 was at work in the past season between 13th October and 7th 
November on the Nipisiguit bar in the middle river channel, where about 12,600 cubic 
yards of sand and clay were removed in deepening a section about 500 feet long and 
100 feet wide about 1,600 feet above the Forks, where previously were depths of about 
10 to 13 feet. 

Dredge P.W.D. No. S was at work between 2Sth August and 27th September and 
on the 2nd, 3rd, 12th and 13th October on the Ripple and Ballast bars, in general remov- 
ing sand and gravel, to the extent of about 29,176 cubic yards, accumulated since the 
dredging was previously done here. 

This dredge worked on the Outer bar between 29th May and 27th August, on 
the 26th and 29th September, and between 5th and 9th and 13th and 16th October, 
removing about 85,221 cubic yards of sand and gravel, covering the greater part of 
the channel across the bar and deepening the outer 4,000 feet where filling-in had 
occurred. 

'I’lie limiting depth in the channel is now about 111 feet. 

The total quantity removed during the fiscal year was about 126,997 cubic yards 
barge measurement.

The Church river enters Miramichi bay about 24 miles northeast of Chatham. 

A contract was entered into on August 9, 1916, with Mr. F. A. Fowlie for the 
removal of 14,000 cubic yards barge measurement, at the rate of 354 cents per cubic 
yard, in dredging cuts 40 feet wide to 3 feet at low water across the lower shoal and 
to 24 feet across the upper shoal. The length of the two cuts was 600 feet and 2,330 
feet respectively. 

During 1916, 6.56S-9 cubic yards were removed in making a cut about 1,900 feet 
long across the upper shoal. 

Dredging was in progress between 23rd May and 2nd August, 1917, when the 
work was completed. 

A total of 14,421-7 cubic yards, barge measurement, was removed, from which a 
deduction of 311-7 cubic yards was made for dredging below subgrade. 

The total place measurement quantity was 12,783-3 cubic yards and the expansion 
factor was 15-4 per cent in the work of the first season and 27-85 per cent during 1917. 


ford's mills. 

Dredging. 

Ford’s Mills is a farming and lumbering settlement at the head of navigation on 
the Coal branch, a tributary of the Riehibucto river. 

Between 17th October and 13th November, 1917, the shoal section was dredged 
by day labour, a small orange-peel dredge Farmer’s Friend being procured from the 
Welsford Agricultural Society at a rental of $14 per day, including wages of engineer 
and cost of gasolene, oil, and repairs. 

A cut was made about 315 feet long, 20 feet wide and 1 to 1J feet deep across a 
sand bar or shoal at the lower end, and in a length of about 1,250 feet at and below 
the landing. Shoal sections were dredged and a large amount of slabs and other mill 
refuse, etc., was removed leaving a channel about 20 feet wide with a depth of 1 to 
1J feet at low water, giving sufficient width for the scows and depth at half tide and 
over. 

The material was cast over, being deposited on a scow by the dredge bucket and 
shovelled off at the opposite side to keep it far enough from the cut. 


KOUCHIBOUGUAC RIVER.

ized under an agreement with Mr. Peter England, and was undertaken between Gth 
and 20th June, when a total of 2,003-1 cubic yards barge measurement was removed 
with the dredge Peter England at the rate of 40 cents per cubic yard barge measure- 
ment. The material was mud, firm day, gravel, etc. 

A cut was made about 600 feet long, 20 feet wide and with 2 to 3 feet at low water 
where was previously a least depth of about 1 foot. 

The approach to and berth at the wharf formerly dry or nearly dry at low water 
were deepened about a foot in a width of 20 to 30 feet and length of about 150 feet. 

MOULIES RIVER. 

Moulies river, Kent county, is a small branch of the Richibucto, entering the 
latter from the west about 17 miles above its mouth. It i9 navigable for small boats 
and scows for about three miles. 

Between 4th and 18th September, 1917, a small wharf, to be used as a lauding 
place and storage ground for shell mud, was constructed at the lower side of a high- 
way bridge at the head of navigation on the Moulies river. 

The landing has a frontage of 95 feet, and consists of cribwork 8 feet wide with 
a wing of the same extending 50 feet to the shore at the lower side. 

The cribwork is filled with stone and surfaced with earth and the area behind the 
cribwork is graded with earth and gravel.

ST. JOHN HARBOUR. 


Berth No. 16. 

The contract for the erection of shed No. 16 was completed by the contractors 
early in June. The contract awarded Messrs. Kane & King on December 22, 1916, 
for 5,000 yards rock ballast to be placed in the rear of the wharf wall to counteract the 
reaction of the weight of concrete on cribwork, was also completed in June. Periodic 
observations of alignment and level are being taken along the concrete face of the 
wharf, and so far no further settlement has occurred. 

Shed No. 16 is 7881 by 90 feet, and has a safe floor load of 400 pounds per square 

foot. 


General repairs to wharves, etc. 

On account of all structures in the harbour being of timber, the annual main- 
tenance and repair is considerable. The repairs carried out during the season were: 
shod roofs, floating fenders, vertical fenders on wharves, etc. 

Deep-water berths. 

During the season, the deep-water berths in the hnrl>our were dredged to a 
uniform depth of 32 feet. This was performed by contract, 17,159 cubic yards being 
removed at on exi>enditure of $6,924.82. 

Grain ronregor galleries, shed/ No. 5. 

On the 13th June, a portion of shed No. 5, on which the grain conveyor galleries, 
erected in 1914, were placed, collapsed and .wrecked about. 300 feet, of grnin conveyor 
galleries. Work was immediately commenced to salvage as much ns possible of the 
conveyor machinery. 

On November 9, a contract was let to Messrs, (irnnt S- Horne for the rebuilding 
of conveyor galleries, and the work of installing machinery was carried out by the 
department’s forces, by day labour, under the supervision of the Metcalf Company 
of Montreal.

Repairs to sheds Ilf and 15. 

During extreme high tides, accompanied by heavy winds, considerable loss and 
inconvenience has, in the past, been experienced at sheds Nos. 14 and 15, by the water 
washing over the berth on to the shed floor. To obviate this damage, the floor on both 
these sheds has been raised about 6 inches. During two severe storms, since this work 
was completed, no inconvenience has been felt. 

Platform No. 15 shed. 

During the severe storm of October 30 and 31, about two hundred feet of plat- 
form, No. 15 berth, was torn up; this was replaced at an expenditure of $660.50. 

Fort Dufferin Breastworks. 

Two severe storms in January and November, 1916, entirely destroyed two 
portions of the breastworks. Work of repair was started and was fairly well advanced 
when the heavy storm of October 30 and 31 last, washed away practically all the work 
under construction, in addition to about 163 feet of the existing work. One portion 
of the breastworks, about 110 feet in length, has been completed. 

Negro Point Breakwater. 

During the season, plans were prepared for the extension of the breakwater. 
Borings and investigations were made on Partridge island to ascertain if the rock was 
suitable for the breakwater. It was found that a considerable quantity of suitable 
rock could be obtained at this place, and the Common Council of the City of St. John, 
on the 30th January last, granted permission to obtain rock on the island. 

PARTRIDGE ISLAND LOW-WATER LANDING. 

Authority was given to rebuild the extension to the low-water landing which was 
constructed to facilitate the landing of passengers, chiefly military, at low stages of 
the tide; the work has been completed. 

ST. NICHOLAS RIVER. 

The South Branch is a small stream entering the St. Nicholas river, Kent county, 
about 4 miles above the mouth of the latter into the Richibucto. 

Between 3rd and 17th and on 30th July, 1917, a small wharf was built near the 
head of navigation on the South branch, i.e., about one mile above its mouth. 

The wharf is intended for the landing and storing of shell mud. dredged near the 
mouth of the river and used as a fertilizer, and is 72 feet long and 5 tiers high on the 
outer face, with wings carried shorewards about 25 feet; the cribwork of front and 
wings is 8 feet wide; a strip 14 to 15 feet wide along the front is planked, behind which 
the wharf is surfaced with gravel, and a right of way about 340 feet long to the public 
road was graded and fenced. 


SHEDIAC BAY. 

Dredging. 

The site of the dredging is in the approach to the Grandigue wharf in Shediac 
bay or the northern end of Shediac harbour, 5 miles north of Shediac. 

Dredging has been in progress in the last four years in the berths at and approach 
to the wharf, the total length of the latter being 2,750 feet. 

To give a general width in the approach of 35 to 40 feet, a section about 1,300 
feet long previously only about 18 feet wide was widened during the past season where 
the depth is about 5 to 6 feet at low water.

Work was in progress in broken time between 17th September and 14th November, 
and the total quantity removed was 2,5S5 cubic yards barge measurement and the 
cost 40 cents per cubic yard. Material, mud. 

SHIPPIGAN Cl>LLY. 

Dredging. 

Two sharp bends in the channel inside the gully have made navigation difficult, 
therefore at different times dredging has been undertaken to give a straight course 
from the gully inwards towards Shippigan harbour. 

During 19l7 the removal of the outer point or bend was begun by dredge P.W.D. 
X o. 13, an area about 550 by 75 feet being dredged to 9 to 10 feet at low water ordinary 
spring tides where the least depth previously was 4 to 5 feet. 

The lower end of the channel across the inner bend was completed, an area about 
600 feet long and 0 to 100 feet wide, starting about 1,300 feet inside the breakwater 
at the gully, being dredged to about 9 feet at low water. At the uppper end of tjiis 
channel, which has a total length of about 2,800 feet, two partial cuts were made 
through a shoal section about 1,000 feet long, the larger cut being about 700 feet long 
by 30 to 60 feet wide and the depth reached was about 8 to 9 feet. 

Work was in progress between 9th July and 29th August and on scattered days 
when the weather permitted up to the 19th October. 

The materials removed amounted to 25,662 cubic yards, barge measurement, of 
mud, sand, and gravel. 


SHIPPIGAN HARBOUR. 

Dredging. 

Between 29th June and 6th July and, at different times between the 1st September 
and the 12th October, dredging was undertaken by dredge P.W.D. No. 13 to deepen 
and extend the berths at the Shippigan public wharf which is situated at the terminus 
of the Caraquet railway, and 3 miles from Shippigan gully. 

The berth along the inside of the pierhead, 75 feet long, was partly dredged to a 
width of about 45 feet, and beyond the pierhead a foundation for a proposed 100-foot 
extension and berth was dredged to 10 to 12 feet at low water. Dredging is still 
required for berths along the inside of the wharf shorewards of the pierhead for a 
total length of 260 feet. 

Along the outer or southern side of the wharf, dredging was done in a length of 
about 370 feet and average width of about 80 feet to extend the berths shorewards. 
Dredging is still required close to the face of this section of the wharf which was close 
piled to prevent settlement of the blocks. 

Depths of 7 to 8 feet were given where there was previously £ to 2 feet at low 
water. 

The total quantity dredged was about 27,041 cubic yards of mud, which includes 
about 11,731 cubic yards overcast, much of which was afterwards removed in scows 
and is included twice in the larger figure.

The dredging between Ste. Anne and Chicoutimi was done by the departmental 
plant “ Steam Derrick.” 

The object of work is to allow the ferry plying half hourly between Ste. Anne and 
Chicoutimi, to fulfil the service at any stage of tide. 

During the present fiscal year, only 2,680 cubic yards of clay and boulders have 
been removed near the Basin wharf; more attention was given to the removal of big 
boulders obstructing the channel on the Chicoutimi side, and near the Ste. Anne 
where 593 cubic yards of boulders have been removed. 

The work consists in the dredging of a channel giving 6 feet of water across the 
Saguenay between Ste. Anne and Chicoutimi basin wharves.

Dredging was done in front of the Grand Trunk Railway wharf in order to 
afford sufficient depth of water by removing 2,190 yards in situ, or 2,910 cubic yards, 
scow measurement, expansion factor 33 per cent, of class B material, clay, sand, and 
small boulders. 

The area dredged, of irregular shape, covers 1,550 square yards; the average 
depth of cut being 4-5 feet. 

An agreement was entered into with La Compagnie Generale d’Entreprises 
Publiques to do the work at the price of 30 cents per cubic yard, scow measurement. 

In order not to interfere with the traffic, the work was done during nights by 
dredge Welland, attended by tug Denisa, between November 10 and 12, 1917. 

GRENVILLE CANAL. 

Grenville is located on the north shore of the Ottawa river, about 5S miles below 
the city of Ottawa. 

During the period, .Tunc IS to 23. the departmental dredge -Vo. 103 worked imme- 
diately below the second lock, cleaning the canal of rock which had fallen in from 
the bank. 

An area of 8,150 square feet was dredged to grade 10 feet on a length of 200 
feet and 25 to 43 feet in width. From 1 to 14 feet of limestone was excavated, a total 
of 455 yards was removed; 333 being cast over on the bank, and 120 spoiled at the 
old dumping ground outside the canal entrance. 

HA IIA BAY. 

Dredging. 

This dredging has been performed at Port Alfred situated on the east side of 
Ha Ha bay, between St. Alphonse and St. Alexis, where the Ha TTa Bay Sulphite 
Company has erected a powerful chemical pulp mill. 

The object of this work is to facilitate the approach, by ocean steamers, to the 
company’s wharf. 

The dredging was performed by the departmental dredge No. 115 ; work was 
started on 2Sth May and .continued until 30tli .Tune. 

The channel, 90 feet wide, commenced in 1910 was continued inwards a further 
190 feet and to a depth of 10 feet below low water spring tides. 

The material was very soft clay, and some difficulty was experienced in performing 
the work. 


ILE AUX FOINS. 

lie aux Foins is the most upstream of the group of islands in river St. Lawrence, 
at the head of lake St. Peter, between Sor«l and Berthier. 

The area dredged was obstructed during the ice shove of 1910, which had deepened 
the channel, at some places, from 10 to 19 feet and, at other places, nearly blocked it. 

From the 3rd July to 10th October, 1917, departmental dredge No. 100 worked 
here and removed 29,067 cubic yards, scow measurement, of sand and clay, in com- 
pleting a channel for ferryboat and traffic between Sorel and Berthier.

Champoux Wharf, Quebec: The Champoux wharf lies in Bonaventure county, 
Quebec, on the Restigouche river, opposite Campbellton. 

Dredging is required here every few years to enable shipments of lumber to be 
made from the Chaleur Bay mills. 

Between 13th .August and 11th September, 1917, dredge P.W.D. No'. 2 was at 
work in the berth along the outer face of the wharf covering an area about 150 feet 
long and 100 feet wide, and giving depths of about 19 to 23 feet at low water ordinary 
spring tides. The inside berth, about 250 feet long by 75 feet wide, was also dredged 
to about 13 to 15 feet. 

The material removed amounted to 13,600 cubic yards barge measurement of mud, 
sand, gravel, etc. 


RIMOUSKI. 

(This work is described in the annual report for 1916.) 

The town of Rimouski, chef-lieu of the county of the same name, is situated on 
the south shore of the St. Lawrence river, 180 miles below Quebec. 

The work done during the last nine months consisted in the sinking of the remain- 
ing caissons, aggregating a lineal length of 800 feet; building a trestle between the 
old and new wharf. 

The superstructure on the caissons sunk this year has been begun ; filling was 
done to the extent of about 15,000- cubic yards, but work was stopped on account of 
the sliding out of the new wharf, and dredging was done to the extent of 96,511 cubic 
yards in the tidal basin. 

Expenditure, about $65,000. 

RIVER SAGUENAY. 

Dredging. 

The channel in the Saguenay river starts from the town of Chicoutimi down to 
the foot of the Battures, a distance of 8 miles. 

The object of the dredging is to provide a channel, 250 feet in width on tangents, 
350 to 500 feet in width on the curves and affording a minimum depth of water of 16 
feet at extreme low water. 

During the present fiscal year, the departmental dredge No. 116 removed 60,604 
cubic yards, scow measurement. 

The operations were started 2nd July, and suspended 6tli ^November. 

The material was sand and clay, and clay with boulders. 

Since the beginning of the enterprise, the channel from Chicoutimi wharf to 
deep water is clear of all obstructions and affording a minimum depth of 16 feet of 
water at extreme low water, except on the north side of the intersection of the last 
two courses, where a lump has been left, but this is not much obstruction, ns it may 
be buoyed, as was done in the fall 1917.

The river St. Maurice flows through the Laurentian mountains, a distance of 
about 360 miles, and discharges in the St. Lawrence river at Les Trois-Rivieres. The 
outlet is divided by islands into three branches called the Eastern, the Middle and the 
Western Channels. 

Between 27th August and 5th October, 1917, the contractor removed, ove>' an area 
of 234,700 square feet. 94,187 cubic yards of sand, scow measurements at 10 cents a 
yard, forming a total of 139,821 cubic yards, scow measurements of material removed 
during the two seasons 1916 and 1917, over a total area of 383,400 square feet, or 
107,296 cubic yards, place measurement, giving an expansion factor of 30-3 per cent. 

ONTARIO. 

BYNG INLET. 

Byng inlet. Parry Sound district, is situated on the Magnetawan river, about 3 
miles from the mouth at Georgian bay, and is a village of about 1,500 population. 

Dredging was done where required in the channel 6,045 feet in length, 200 feet 
in width and to a depth of 20 feet below the zero of Georgian bay, elevation 580-0, 
from the mouth of the river at Clark’s island to the Canadian Pacific coal docks. The 
average depth of cut was 8-6 feet. 

The work was performed by the government dredge P.W.D. No. 109, and work 
was commenced June 7 and completed August 11, 1917. • 

The material removed amounted to 53,336 cubic yards in situ, or 74.948 cubic 
yards, scow measure, class “ B ” material, and consisted of mud, sand, and clay. All 
material was seowed out to Georgian bay, an average towage distance of 3 miles. 


CARDINAL. 

This work consisted of cleaning out an area of 3-06 acres in the Old Cardinal 
canal to connect the canal basin with the main channel of the river St. Lawrence, in 
order to provide sufficient depth to allow vessels of 14 feet draught to dock at the 
Canada Starch Company’s wharves at extreme low water. Work was done 26th 
September to 16th November, 1917, when 16,250 yards, place measurement, or 24,600, 
scow measure, of clay, sand, and boulders were removed by departmental dredge No. 
JSS. 


COROURC. 

Dredging. 

Authority was given to accept the offer of the Robert Weddell Company to remove 
by dredging 7,427 cubic yards, place measurement, from the harbour, at the rate of 
39 cents per cubic yard, place measurement, to provide a depth of 20 feet below low 
water over the shoal areas at the entrance, which said shoal areas extended easterly 
from east end of west breakwater across harbour mouth, and were a source of consider- 
able trouble to the Ontario Car ferries in entering and leaving the harbour. 

An amount of 900 cubic yards, place measurement, was authorized to be removed 
in the lower end of slip at ear ferry dock ; this amount to be in extension of the 7,427 
cubic yards under contract with the R. Weddell Company. 

The work done in the inner harbour consisted in dredging to n depth of 22-5 feet, 
a section 40 feet in width by 125 feet in length, at entrance to enr ferry slip, so ns to

DESBARATS. 

Desbarats is a village, about 30 miles east of Sault Ste. .Marie, situated on the 
line of the Canadian Pacific railway, and about a mile from the mouth of the small 
river named Walker river, which flows in a southerly direction and empties into the 
north channel of lake Huron, opposite St. Joseph island. 

Work of constructing a small landing by day labour was commenced on the 15th 
August and was completed on the 18th of August, 1917. 

The work was necessary in order to facilitate the traffic by launches, including 
mail boats, to and from St. Joseph island. Owing to the high-water level of lake 
Huron during 1917, the old slab-and-sawdust wall or embankment, which had been 
used as a wharf, was submerged. The work consisted of an L-shaped platform, con- 
structed on the old slab-and-sawdust landing place, one section of which is 6 feet wide 
by 36 feet long, 8 feet wide by 43 feet long, and 6 feet wide by 12 feet long, giving the 
landing a water face 91 feet long. Sawdust and slabs were hauled and spread in the 
rear to make additional width and dry approaches. 

FORT WILLIAM. 

Fort William, district of Thunder Bay, a city of 18,000 people, is situated at the 
mouth of the Ivaministikwia river near the northwest end of lake Superior. 

The harbour consists of 13-02 miles of navigable channels in the Kaministikwia 
river and in the McKellar and Mission channels, which for the most part have been 
dredged to a depth of 25 feet below L.W.L., and have a general width of 500 feet. The 
harbour frontage available for dockage amounts to 22-45 miles, of which 7-73 miles 
have already been built up. 

Mission River Revetment Wall . — The work of rectification of cribs Nos. 101 to 
105. inclusive. Operations in connection with this work were commenced on April 7 
and closed down on November 12 last, when the work was accepted from the con- 
tractors, subject to their agreeing to perform any minor repairs that might be found 
necessary after an inspection early this spring. 

Two different and yet somewhat similar methods were used in performing this 
work, viz. : (1) the method used in connection with cribs Nos. 102 and 103, where it 
had been found necessary to remove all of the old concrete superstructure, and (2) 
the method used in the rectification of cribs Nos. 101, 104, and 105, where the old 
concrete superstructure had been left in place. 

In the former case, the cribs were raised in timber to the original required eleva- 
tion of the cribs below L.W.L., the raised sections of cribs not only being secured to 
the old crib-work, but the lower cross-ties of the raised sections being spaced at 21-foot 
centres and projecting beyond the front face of crib-work 15 inches so as to rest on 
the piling, which was driven as part of the work of rectification at the spacing stated, 
and was secured by screw bolts and drift bolts to the old crib-work. In addition, an 
iron stirrup was placed over the top of every alternate projecting cross-tie and was 
bolted to the old crib-work with drift bolts, after the raised section of these cribs had 
been secured in place, then two piles were driven to solid foundation through each of 
the rear pockets of these cribs ; heavy rocks aud broken concrete were then placed as 
filling in and along the rear of these cribs to about L.W.L., and the concrete super- 
structure, including the concrete blocks that had been salvaged, was replaced.

In the case of cribs Nos. 101, 104 and 105, British Columbia fir piling from 80 to 
90 feet long was driven at 2A-foot spacing along the front of these cribs and secured to 
the front face timbers by iron drift bolts, the piles being cut off at an elevation of from 
12 to 14 feet below L.W.L.; on the top of these piles a row of waling, 10 by 16 in site, 
was secured to the face timbers of crib, and in order to assist in transferring the 
greater part of the weight of the structure to the piles, vertical struts of hard maple, 
6 by 12 by 6 feet were secured to the face timbers of cribs above the waling, at about 
20-inch centres. These struts were drift-bolted to the crib-work with six drift bolts; in 
addition, a pair of piles was driven in each of the rear pockets of these cribs to solid 
bottom, and the stone -filling in rear of the concrete superstructure was brought to 
about L. W. L. with heavy rock and old broken concrete. The concrete superstructure 
of this section of the work then scarified, the old bollards removed and new inass 
concrete was poured, in order to bring the work to the established datum, and the 
bollards were replaced. The waling along the front of concrete superstructure was 
then renewed. 

All of the above work was performed by force account under clause 36 of con- 
tract, with the exception of the placing of new concrete, new concrete blocks, new 
waling, and iron above water. 

Mission River Revetment Wall: Repair and renewal of waling along the front 
face of superstructure of the revetment wall in the G.T.P. terminal basin and slips 
were performed between 11th and 22nd of November. 

Dredging : Dredging was performed in this harbour during the present season, by 
the Great Lakes Dredging Co., Limited. 

The work done, which consists in widening and deepening the Kaministikwia 
river and .Mission channel, was performed by dredges No. 6 and Dominion, between 
the following dates, viz: Dredge No. 6, May 6 and November 27, and dredge Domi- 
nion, May 15 and June 23, and from July 30 to November 30 last, on which date all 
operations were closed down for the season.

Power Company, Ltd., and the Canadian Pacific Railway Company, all cables belong- 
ing to the parties named were removed from the bed of the river, and on the completion 
of the dredging these cables were relaid in a common trench a short distance above the 
bridge, at a depth of 30 feet below L.W.L., the trench being backfilled with broken 
shale and gravel to an elevation of 26 feet below L.W.L. By far the greater part of 
this section of the river is now practically at the required elevation, and it was 
endeavoured to establish this point by sweeping to a depth of 25 feet below L.W.L. ; 
it was found, however, that there were several small shoals which will require removal 
during the coming season. 

Certain shoal areas found to exist in that section of the river lying between the 
Empire elevator and the McKellar channel, and which extended for the most part 
along and adjacent to the dockage on the north side of the river, were removed to 
subgrade, a total quantity of 86,404 cubic yards, scow measurement, being dredged in 
this instance. .

SESSIONAL PAPER No. 19 

Authority was given to proceed with dredging required at Wabassa park, the 
work to be done by departmental dredge No. 114, and the amount to be dredged being 
7,714 cubic yards, scow measurement. 

Work was commenced April 30, and completed September 1. Part of this material 
was cast over for filling purposes, 4,318-8 cubic yards, place measurement or 6,838 
cubic yards, scow measurement, were removed. 

It was necessary to provide a draught of 12 feet for the landing of steamers at 
this location and two sections were dredged over; first on east side of wharf, a section 
85 by 160 feet; and secondly, on west side, a section 70 by 120 feet were deepened. 

Authority was given to move dredge No. 114 to Oliver Plow Works, to complete 
the cleaning up of the section opposite dock, on northeast half of channel. 

This work had previously been dredged to grade but on account of filling in, this 
section constituted a shoal area which was not available for full draught. The sec- 
tion deepened covered a length of 1,000 feet by a width of 300 feet. 

Work was commenced May 11 and completed October 9 ; 24,916 cubic yards, place 
measurement, or 29,023 cubic yards, scow measurement, were removed. Dredging 
was carried to a depth of 17-5 and 20-0 feet below zero. 

Authority was given to do necessary dredging at revetment wall, foot of Catherine 
street. Work was commenced June 19, and completed June 20; 285-8 cubic yards, 
place measurement, or 352 cubic yards, scow measurement, were removed in dredging 
at this section to 15 feet below zero. 

The above work was done to remove a shoal area caused by outlet of Catherine 
street sewer, which said shoal area caused inconvenience to the landing of the Canada 
Steamship Company’s steamers at their dock. A section, 47 feet by 265 feet, was 
dredged over in removing this shoal area. 

Authority was given to do the necessary dredging at Rock Bay wharf. Work was 
commenced June 22 and completed July 14; 6.533.3 cubic yards, place measurement, or 
6,593 cubic yards, scow measurement, were removed. 

Dredging was carried on to 10 feet below- zero. A channel 490 feet in length by 
85 feet in width, was dredged over to give necessary accommodation. 

HAWKESBURY. 

ITawkesbury is located on the south shore of the Ottawa river, about 58 miles 
below the City of Ottawa. 

In order to restore the navigable channel to Captain Lawlor’s wharf, used for 
public traffic, departmental dredge No. 103 continued the improvements started in 
1915, principally to remove waste pulp which has accumulated in the past sixteen 
years between the Riordon pulp mills and Cobb’s island. The dredge operated here 
from June 6 to November 20, under an agreement with the Riordon Pulp & Paper Co., 
Ltd. During this period, the total yardage removed was 58,289 (scow measurement), 
of which 53,975 was waste pulp, 4,314 cubic yards clay and sand, and 131 boulders 
(place measurement). Eleven single cuts, 25 feet wide, were made, aggregating 6,159 
lineal feet to grade elevation 118, or original bottom. 

On August 4, departmental dredge No. 103 also removed 325 yards clay in connec- 
tion with the laying of a new water main for the R.P. & P. Co., under an agreement 
with Fuller & Co. 


KINCARDINE. 

Dredging. 

Authority was given to accept the offer <jf the C. S. Boone Dredging Company to 
do the necessary work at a rate of 34 cents per cubic yard, place measurement, with 
a total excavation of 14,668 cubic yards. 



28 


REPORT OF THE CHIEF EXGIXEER 


9 GEORGE V, A. 1919 

By authority, the total amount to be excavated was increased to 16,332 cubic yards, 
place measurement. 

Work was commenced July 20, by dredge Kingsford and completed August 24, 
aud consisted iu dredging a channel width of 50 feet between piers for a length of S50 
feet, as well as a bell-mouth entrance of 250 feet in length with a maximum width of 
150 feet. 

In inner harbour a section of 200 feet in width by 405 feet in length was dredged 
leading to the People’s Salt and Soda Company’s dock. The excavation was carried 
to a depth of 14 feet below the zero water level. 

KINGSTON. 

The completion of the erection of the bascule bridge and installation of appur- 
tenances thereto. Traffic over the roadway and bridges was formally opened on April 
16 and the bascule has been in successful operation since July 18, the records showing 
a total of 776 lifts from July 25 to December 14. when navigation closed. 

The object of the work is to provide a highway across the Cataraqui river, together 
with wharfage facilities. The bascule is built over the channel leading into the inner 
harbour and Anglin’s bay and designed to be lifted so as to permit vessels to pass in 
and out. Depth of channel under lift span 22 feet; depth of harbour inside, not yet 
completed. 16 feet, both with reference to lowest water of lake Ontario. 


MIDLAND. 


Dredging. 

Authority was given to dredge an area 400 feet in length along the front of the 
launching face of the Midland Dry Dock Company and out to the 21-foot contour, the 
depth to be 21 feet below elevation 580-0. This work consisted in the removal of tho 
slab docks, mud, clay, and sand. The total quantity removed amounted to 67,073 
cubic yards, scow measurement; authority was given to extend the work an additional 
length of 215 feet. The quantity dredged amounted to 26,908 cubic yards, scow 
measurement. The whole work was done by dredge P.W.D. No. 109 and was completed 
November 26, 1917. Both areas were swept and found to be 21 feet below zero of 
gauge elevation 580-0. 


POINT EDWARD. 

Dredging. 

Point Edward is at the entrance of the St. Clair river, south end of lake Huron. 

The strong current in the river and lake storms wash sand and gravel into the 
mouth of the river, making it necessary to dredge each year to maintain a navigable 
depth. 

According to a verbal agreement with the District Engineer Officer of the United 
States War Department, it is agreed that neither side will permit dredging deeper 
than 23 feet below the zero of the water gauge, elevation 578-51 at Point Edward and 
any point in the river between the international tunnel and lake Huron. 

The sand and grnvel in this part of the river, on the Canadian side, is of a com- 
mercial value, and it has been found satisfactory to grant a dredging company per- 
mission to remove it free, the gravel becoming their property. For the purpose of 
giving effect to this agreement, and regulating the dredging, an agreement was made 
with the Chick Contracting Company of Windsor, permitting them to dredge between 
Cromwell street, Sarnia, and Point Edward, providing they undertake to supply all 
Canadian municipalities and interests along tho St. Clair ami Detroit rivers with 
gravel at a regulated price.

PORT ARTHUR. 

The city of Port Arthur, Port Arthur — Kenora district, has a fine natural location 
on the shore of Thunder bay near the northwestern end of lake Superior. 

T emporary Pile Protection Breakwater. 

To provide adequate protection for the grain elevators being constructed in the 
north end of the harbour, pending the construction of further extensions to the Bare 
Point breakwater, tenders were called in November, 1917, for the construction of a 
pile protection breakwater. 

Advice was received on December 24 that the contract had been awarded to the 
Thunder Bay Harbour Improvement Company. 

Work was commenced on 17th January and the final estimate in favour of the 
contractors was sent on March 19, 1918. 

This breakwater was built in two sections of 753 feet long each. It consisted 
of: — 

(а) One continuous row of round piles, approximately 45 feet long with two 
waling strips attached; 

(б) One row of round piles spaced 5 feet centre to centre longitudinally and 
driven alternately at 6 feet from the guide piles; 

(c) One row of round piles spaced 5 feet centre to centre longitudinally and 
driven 10 feet from the guide piles with a waling strip attached; 

( d ) One row of round anchor piles placed and driven close to waling strip attached 
to piles, described (c) ; 

The whole securely fastened by waling, bracing all screw bolted, and 

(e) A cluster of six. piles every 25 feet and bound by J-inch wire cable, driven 
close to the guide piles (a).

PORT BURWELL. 

Dredging. 

Sediment is deposited in the winding basin and between the piers by Otter creek. 
The channel east and south of the breakwater continually collects sediment and sand 
drifting on the lake bottom. 

Work of dredging began April 9 and stopped July 14; it was resumed on 
November 12, but owing to a serious break in the dipper on the 14th it was discon- 
tinued for the season. 

Surveys of the harbour were made April 9 and July 7. The following table is 
the result of a study of place measurements and scow measurements based on the 
above surveys: —

It will be noted that the expansion factor is unusually large; this is probably 
due to the large quantity of sediment and 9and deposited during the progress of the 
work between April 9 and July 7. The navigable depth during 1917 was much better 
than in 1916, owing to the bottom being lower and the lake level unusually high.

PORT STANLEY. 

Dredging. 

Sediment is deposited in the inner harbour and the winding basin by Kettle, creek, 
particularly during freshets, and sand drifts into the dredged channel south of the 
breakwaters. 

Public Works dredge No. 11 7 began work July 30 and stopped November 10. The 
quantity removed was 64.101 cubic yards, scow measurement. 

During the season, dredge No. 11 7 was rented to Contractor M. -T. Hogan to 
assist in dredging berths for the extension of the western breakwater, also some other 


32 


DEPARTMENT OF PUBLIC WORKS

work. Some of the work performed by the dredge for Contractor Ilogan was covered 
by a schedule of contract price; other work, such as digging ballast stone, was not 
covered by dredging price, the contractor being paid for the ballast stone in the work. 

The total yardage removed for the Government and for Contractor Hogan’s work, 
including crib seats, ballast stone, etc., amounted to 99,311 cubic yards; at a total 
cost of $16,670.79, being an average price of 16.9 cents per cubic yard scow measure- 
ment. 

During the month of June, a contract was entered into with M. J. Ilogan, and 
465 oubic yards of clay removed in front of the revetment wall on the west side of the 
harbour near the highway bridge, at a cost of 18 cents per cubic yard, total $83.70, 
and the material was placed behind the revetment wall. The dredging was done to 
accommodate the Cleveland and Port Stanley passenger steamers; when the company 
undertook to operate its steamers it found that on account of the difficulty in obtain- 
ing passports it would be impossible to do so during war time. 

The dredging in the entrance channel is not completed, and it is proposed to con- 
tinue the work during next season. 


RONDEAU. 

Dredging. 

Rondeau is an important port of entry and harbour of refuge at Point aux Pins, 
north shore of lake Erie. 

It was found necessary to deepen the dock; this was done by Public Works dredge 
Wo. 11 7 working from July 21 to July 28. The quantity removed was 11,446 cubic 
yards scow measurement at a cost of $1,773.29, equal to 15.4 cents per cubic yard 
scow measurement. 

TORONTO. 

(This work is described in the annual report for 1915.) 

The city of Toronto, with a population of half a million, and situated near the 
head of lake Ontario, possesses an exceptionally fine land-locked liarbour, known as 
Toronto bay. 

During the past season, one 100-foot crib was sunk and ballasted, 1,490 lineal feet 
was levelled up and capped, and, of this, 430 lineal feet has been floored with 4-inch 
hemlock. Some rectification work was also performed, 300 lineal feet of cribwork 
being made acceptable to the department. Dredging done during the year amounted 
to 5,679 cubic yards. This section of the work was commenced in May, 1914, and 
since that date, 4,340 lineal feet of cribwork has been placed and the necessary round 
piles driven along front and rear faces. 

Where extra depth of water was encountered, cribs resting therein were built 20 
feet wide at the base and stepped in to the standard 16-foot width on top. 

Fiction " C — (Ship channel and turning basin. On t his section of the work 
excellent progress has been made practically all the old substructure work has been 
rectified and a considerable length of new wall has been placed. Of the rectification, 
only about 65 lineal feet of wall have yet to be made to conform with the requirements 
of the Department, and 5,140 lineal feet of entirely new substructure has been placed. 
Of the concrete superstructure, 16.033 cubic yards have been poured. Tims, of the 
total, 13/(02 lineal feet in the ship channel, 2,060 lineal feet have been completed. 
4,470 lineal feet require only the top lift of the superstructure, 610 lineal feet have 
the first lift or slab placed, and 5,862 linenl feet require the whole superstructure. 

Tn the turning basin, practically all round piles, caps, and stringers nre in place. 
All this work, or 3,787 lineal feet, has been done during the past season. 

Tt is interesting to note that the contractors, appreciating the difficulty of per- 
forming this work under water, hnve built a levee around the site of the different

walls, and by the aid of pumps are enabled to hold the water-level at a point 2 feet 
below the top of bent piles. Thus the structure being exposed to view, the (juality and 
progress of the work are both improved. 

During the year, S47.527 cubic yards were removed from the ship channel and 
turning basin by hydraulic dredge, and deposited as backfill. Dredging necessary to 
build walls on this section of the work amounted to 32,529 cubic yards for the same 
period. 

Extra wort- done at corner “K" — Sections “C” and “I)”. — Owing to the soft 
material encountered near corner "K”, it was found necessary to use piles of greater 
length than used in other parts of the wall, also to supply additional anchorage 60- 
foot round piles and 60 and 76-foot sheet-piles were used as conditions warranted; the 
latter being of such leugth as to reach the rock, and being shod, have obtained a toe- 
hold in the rock, thereby preventing any sliding of the wall. 

Additional anchorage was also provided by driving piles 50 feet behind the stan- 
dard anchorage and extending the 2-inch rods back to them, thereby preventing any 
overturning tendency of the wall. 

The substructure of this work has now been completed at an additional cost of 
$44,495.59 more than the standard type of walls called for by the plans and specifica- 
tions. 

All of this work has been done in the dry, being within the area where the water 
has been reduced to 4 feet 9 inches below the ordinary lake level. 

Section D. — Retaining walls, northern slip and marginal way. — That portion of 
the contract known as the northern slip or Don diversion channel was completed ready 
for back-fill during the fiscal year 1916-17, as was also the north marginal way wall. 

On section WW 1, known as Poison’s extension (924 feet in length), the whole 
substructure has been rectified. The design of this wall has been altered so that the 
timber superstructure is now replaced by a combination of concrete and timber. 

During this year, the substructure of sections KV and YY known as the south 
marginal way wall, 1,350 feet in length, has been rectified and the first two lifts of 
concrete superstructure have been completed, 1,856 cubic yards having been poured. 

Work on the 900-foot ventilating channel was started during the year, and all of 
the substructure on the 1,800 feet of wall has been completed, with the exception of 
about 100 feet at the north end. 

In order to build these walls it was necessary to dredge 60,273 cubic yards of 
material, of which 33.629 cubic yards were within the channel itself.

BIO GEORGE ISLAND. 

The object of the work at this place is to provide a harbour of refuge for vessels 
plying in the northern waters of lake Winnipeg. 

During the past season, the approach to the harbour begun in 1916-17 (see report 
for fiscal year ending March 31, 1917, page 50) was continued, a cut 100 by 30 feet 
with an average cut of 2-5 being made. Approximately at right angles to this approach 
and at the outer side of the harbour, a cut 510 by 50 feet, with an aA’erage cut of 2-5 
was also made. 

The proposed harbour will be 500 by 300 feet when complete and the work of the 
past season still leaves an area of 500 by 250 feet untouched. It will also be necessary 
to deepen the portion already dredged. 

The material removed consisted almost entirely of granite boulders, with some 
sand ; the boulders were cast over towards the lake in order to provide a breakwater, 
and the amount of material removed was 3,161 cubic yards, place measure.

the area dredged was 300 feet long by 100 wide, to S feet at low tide; 6,395 cubic yards 
of material was removed. 


II L RltS LANniNU. 

The dredge King Edward dredged a channel in front of Burrs Landing, on the 
Fraser river, about 8 miles below New Westminster. 

Work was started on January 22, 1918, and completed March 5, during which time 
35,065 cubic yards of sand was removed. The channel dredged was 1,780 feet long, 
average width 175 and 10 feet deep at low tide. 


COQUITLAM. 

The dredge King Edward dredged in front of the Pacific Construction Company’s 
shipyard, at Coquitlam, who are building two ships for the Imperial Munitions Board. 
The cut made was 200 feet long, 200 wide, to 12 feet at low tide. Work commenced 
December 19, but the material was found too hard, and after working some days and 
removing about 2,035 cubic yards the dredge was removed to other work, and January 
28, 1918, the dredge Mudlark started work and removed 12,900 cubic yards, and com- 
pleted the work on March 8, 1918. 

COURTENAY RIVER. 

The Courtenay river runs in a southeasterly direction into Comox harbour. 
Courtenay, near its mouth, the northerly terminus of the Esquimalt and Nanaimo 
railway, is the principal town of the Comox valley. 

During 1914 and 1915, the original tortuous channej over the tidal flats between 
Comox bay and the mouth of the Courtenay river had been straightened by dredging 
a new channel 3,000 feet long and 10 feet wide by means of the departmental dredge 
King Edward. 

During the latter end of the past fiscal year, the orange-peel bucket dredge 
Victoria cut a channel 80 feet in width, by removing numerous boulders and snags and 
providing additional depth over two bars, at the river mouth and below the town of 
Courtenay, respectively. The estimated quantity of material which was all overcast 
to the sides of the channel, from April 1 to July 31, 1917. date when the work was 
completed, was 6,087 cubic yards. 

The total length of channel improved to date is 7,000 feet. 


pear island. 

The dredge King Edward dredged a channel in front of the Dens Island cannery, 
on the Fraser river, about 9 miles below New Westminster. 

The object of this work was to enable fishing boats, etc., to get to the cannery 
wharf and net racks, at all stages of tide. The length of the cut was 550 feet, the 
average width 70 and the depth made was 8 feet at low tide. The total amount 
removed was 12,840 cubic yards. 

The work was commenced May 28 and finished June 1, 1917. 


EBURNE. 

Three wing dams were built on the south branch of the north arm of the Fraser 
river, about a mile and a half below Ehurno, to deflect the current from the bank. 
These wing dams were 75 feet long, and 300 feet apart, built with two rows of piles 6 
feet apnrt and filled with layers of brush and rock. 

This work was commenced November 19. and completed December 31, 1917.

Dredging. 

The dredge King Edward dredged material from the channel opposite the three 
wing dams constructed by the department last November, the material being deposited 
on each side of the wing dams, and along the shore between them, and 30,895 cubic- 
yards was placed there. 

This work was commenced March 1* and completed March 26. 1918. 

FOREST GLEN, COLUMBIA RIVER. 

As a further improvement to the steamboat channel at this point, two additional 
cuts were made during the fiscal year 1917-18 west of and parallel to the cut of 1910- 
17, giving a 300 foot channel between the sand bar and island, with a minimum depth 
of 8 feet of water at low water. The spoil bank piled to the, west of the cut practically 
cuts oif all flow of water on this side at the low-water stage, and this concentrates the 
full volume of the river through the cut. It is expected that further silting-in of 
channel at this point will be eliminated. 

Work here was commenced by P.W. dredge No. 311 on November 5, 1917, and 
completed March 31, 1918. During this time, 88,400 cubic yards of sand were handled, 
24,600 cubic yards of which were twice overcast. 

FRASER RIVER. 

Steveston Jetty. 

Messrs. Marsh, Hutton A: Powers had the contract for the second unit of the 
Steveston jetty, which they completed in July, 1917. 

The Marsh, Hutton k Powers contract for the second unit of the Steveston jetty 
called for a length of 7,100 feet, but an extension of 1,800 feet was authorized on 
August 15, 1916, which makes a total length of jetty now completed of 15,800 feet 
from Steveston out towards the gulf of Georgia. 

Dredging. 

Work was started on April 12, completed on May 1, 1917, and consisted in deep- 
ening the channel in front of the British Columbia Cannery, situated on the south 
bank of the Fraser river, about 2£ miles below New Westminster. 

The length of the cut was 1,520 feet, and the average width was 150-; the dredging 
was done to 9 feet at low tide, which included 1-foot subgrade, and the amount removed 
was 50,580 cubic yards. 

Sandheads. 

The dredge 303 (F raiding) has worked all the year at the sandheads at the month 
of the main channel of the Fraser river, from Steveston to the gulf of Georgia, a dis- 
tance of about 5.5 miles. 

During the fiscal year ending March 31, 1918, the dredge removed 684,800 cubic 
yards of material from various places in the channel; 31,200 yards were removed near 
buoy 24 ; 355,200 from the channel between buoys Nos. 1 and 3 ; 166,400 from channel 
between buoys Nos. 3 and 5, and 132,000 from channel between buoys Nos. 9 and 11. 

North Ann. 

The dredge King Edward dredged a channel from the main channel in the north 
arm of the Fraser river up to the Heaps Engineering Company’s wharf, and deepened 
the water in front of Mercer and Dawe’s ways, and wharf. 

Work was started November 22 and completed December 13, 1917. Tte length of 
the cut was 835 feet, width 150, and 8 feet deep at low tide. Total amount removed 
was 24.740 cubic yards.

GRAHAM’S LANDING. 

The lower crossing of the Columbia river at this point was extremely narrow, and 
to permit of safer passage of vessels, further dredging was necessary. On April 2. 
1917, P.W. dredge A o. , 311 began operations here, and completed work on April 30. 
1917. 

A cut 1,548 feet long and 75 feet wide was made giving a minimum depth of 8 
feet of water at low water. The material, clay, amounted to 12,900 cubic yards, all 
overcast. 


LADNER. 

Work consisted in dredging a channel 1,320 feet long, to 10 feet at low tide, and 
the average width was 174 feet. The total amount removed was 84,830 cubic yards 
from deep water below the wharves at Ladner up to within about 100 feet from the 
Brackman-Ker Company’s wharf. Work was commenced May 7 and completed August 
C, 1917. 

LILLOOET RIVER. 

The Lillooet river drains the Lillooet lakes, and passes through a flat country 
known as Pitt meadows, before it empties into the Pitt river about two miles from 
its junction with the Fraser river. 

A request was made and authority was granted to clear and deepen the channel 
of this river, from the cut made last fiscal year, up to the third bridge, a distance of 
about 3,500 feet; in this distance the channel was deepened and the bends in the river 
were straightened, the material being thrown out on each side. About 34,001 cubic 
yards of material were removed. 

To do this work, a dredge was hired, at the rate of $5 per hour while actually 
dredging, and delays of more than half an hour for breakdowns or putting on fuel 
were deducted. The total cost was $2,266, which included $245 for inspection. 1 he 
work was started June 22, 1917, and completed August 15, 191,. 

LONG BAY FLOAT. 

On September 22, 1917, authority was given to move the government float from 
Hope point to Long bay; this was done on October 3, 1917, and there was no expendi- 
ture in connection with this work, except $19.15 for some material for small repairs, etc. 

NANAIMO. 

Nanaimo is on the east coast of Vancouver island. For shipping coal, the main 
export of the port and many steamers of considerable size call for bunker coal. Two 
channels connect the harbour entrance .with the coal wharves. They are on the north 
and south sides, respectively, of the middle bank in the centre of the harbour. 

The Lobnitz rock breaker No. 2 worked on Nicol rock and blocks 11 and J, north 
channel, during the whole of the fiscal year, reporting an estimated quantity of 11,485 
cubic yards of rock broken. 

The departmental dipper dredge Ajax removed the following material between 
June 15 and July 9, 1917. and December 6, 1917. and January 10. 1918:—

This leaves an estimated quantity of 21,864 cubic yards (place measurement) still 
to be removed. No further work is required on block I which has now a minimum 
depth of 29 feet at low water. The present minimum depths at low water on block H 
is 27-2 feet: on block J, 23-8 feet; and Nicol rock, 21-2 feet. 

NITINAT INLET. 

The Xitiuat inlet is situated on the west coast of Vancouver island about 80 miles 
from Victoria. The removal of a rock drying 21 feet at low water in the narrow part 
of the Inlet leading from the open Pacific to the Xitinat lake has been removed to a 
depth of 10 feet at low water. The estimated quantity of rock (diorito) to be removed 
was 243 cubic yards, place measurement. Additional improvement has been made by 
the removal of rock from two projecting points in the narrows. 

The work was undertaken between August 1 and October 28, 1917, and the total 
payment to the contractor being $3,645. 

OKANAGAN ItIVER. 

Between 18th April and 22nd October, 1917, the work consisted of completing the 
dredging required to deepen the navigable channel between stations 51 and 98 (1909 
survey) to the established grade line and, where required, repairing the bank protec- 
tion work when necessary, as the work of dredging was proceeded with. The material 
moved consisted of gravel and sand, of which 12,717 cubic yards was overcast and 
deposited on the bank or loaded on to the brusli-and-piling protection work. 

RENDER HARBOUR. 

A channel was made through Canoe pass, which connects Bargain bay with 
Pender harbour, to enable small craft and fishing boats to go through the pass at a 
medium stage of tide. The length of the excavated channel was 485 feet, and an 
average depth of 3 feet was excavated, 10 feet wide at the bottom in the earth excava- 
tion, with slopes 2 to 1, and 14 feet wide at the bottom through the rock excavation, 
with slopes 4 to 1. 

The work was started May 7, and was completed July 5, 1917. 

PENTICTON. 

On 23rd October, 1917, work was. commenced at the Penticton Lumber Com- 
pany’s mill pond, for the purpose of lowering the floor of the pond to the grade line of 
the Okanagan river at that point. On the 6th November, dredging was suspended, to 
allow the crew to do some pressing work at the control dam at head of river, was 
resumed 4th December, and completed 14th December, 1917. 

On this work, 2,442 cubic yards was overcast and 364 cubic yards re-overcast, a 
total of 2,806 yards, the material being mud, some of which was deposited on the east 
bank of the pond and the remainder dumped on the west side, and, later on, removed 
by dredge. 


POPLAR ISLAND. 

The dredge King Edward deepened the channel of the north arm ^of the Fraser 
river, at the head of Poplar island, to enable the Westminster Construction and 
Engineering Company to launch the four ships that they have under construction for 
the Imperial Munitions Board. 

The work was started August 10 and completed November 22, 1917. The length 
of the cut was 1,050 feet. 400 wide, and 12 feet at low tide. The yardage removed 
was 73,680 cubic yards.

SEA OTTER COVE. 

Sea Otter cove is a small settlement at the northerly end of Vancouver island. 
During the past fiscal year, a floating landing was built and the sum of $550 was paid 
to the contractors, Messrs. James MacDonald & Company for the construction, 20 by 
11 feet with floating approach 220 by 6 feet. A portion of the approach and the float 
were lost while being towed to the site and are being replaced. The contractor is 
engaged, at the time of writing this report, on completing this work which has been 
considerably delayed owing to its inaceessability. 

SQUAMISH. 

The dredge King Edward proceeded to Squamisli, at the head of Howe sound; 
125,800 cubic yards of material were removed in 1916-17 and on June 13, 1917, work 
was resumed, but it was found that during the freshet in the Squamish river a great 
deal of material was brought down and filled up the dredging that had been done. 
On July 5, instructions were received to remove the dredge and work at Ladner; 
43,135 cubic yards were removed during this time; this dredging was done to 8 feet 
at low tide, but this depth could not be maintained on account of the material that 
was brought down the river at low tide. 

, VANCOUVER. 

Vancouver is the largest city on the west coast of Canada, has a population of 
110,000, and is the western terminus of several railways, also the Canadian shipping 
point to China, Japan, and all oriental ports. 

The dredging done this year, consists in the removal of 234,780 cubic yards from 
the north side of the Narrows, and 117,910 from Parthia shoal. The object of the work 
as originally laid out was to widen the Narrows to 1,200 feet, deepen the channel to 35 
at low tide and to remove Parthia shoal to the same depth. The work on the north 
side of the channel was started April 12, and October 18, 1917, operations were com- 
menced on Parthia shoal, which was finished on March 19. 

Parthia shoal was dredged to 36 feet, which included 1 foot subgrade, but it was 
found by sweeping that there were large boulders there which were too big for the 
dredge to handle. The total amount of material removed from the north shore of the 
Narrows and Parthia shoal since work commenced is 4,139,260 cubic yards, scow 
measurement. 


VICTORIA. 

Piers 2 and 8. 

Filling was done between the walls of the piers and behind the bulkheads; 534,482 
cubic yards of backfill were placed during the year, completing the work in March. 

The rubble walls between the bulkheads and shore were completed by the addition 
of 8.260 tons of rock. 

The extension of the Montreal street surface drain made necessary by the reclama- 
tion of the foreshore was carried out at a total cost of $790.18. 

Freight Shed on Pier No. 2. 

Work of construction of a freight shed, 201 by 703 feet, to be used by the Imperial 
Munitions Hoard as an assembly plant for the installation of machinery in the wooden 
ships being built on the coast was commenced on 26th September, and virtually com- 
pleted by the end of January, at a cost of $217,629.44.

of 6,600 feet consisting of a main line with tail track, three tracks on approach trestle 
and apron, surface tracks on both sides of pier 2, depressed track in the centre of pier 
2, and storage track. 

The slip designed to meet any three-track car barge being operated by either the 
Canadian Pacific Railway or the Great Northern Railway, was commenced in Decem- 
ber and was in operation on March 26, 1918. 


Dredging. 

The dredging carried out during the past year had as its main object the further 
improvement of the channel to James bay by the removal' of rock to the south of 
Pelly island, also the removal of rock to the east of Songhees point to provide addi- 
tional facilities for vessels leaving the Canadian Pacific Railway wharves and the 
removal of Turpel’s rocks in the centre of the upper harbour. The navigable area 
is being gradually increased year by year, and the grade of 20 feet below low water 
over areas already covered is maintained. The following plant, working on single 
shift, assisted with the above work: Dredges -4/a:r and Mudlark, and Lobnitz rock 
breaker No. 1 worked during the whole of the year, while rock-drill plant No. 2 worked 
from April 1 to May 19, and July 25 to October 12. The dredge Ajax paid two visits 
to Nanaimo during the year, also working at Powell river. 

Upper Harbour . — Since the establishement of the shipbuilding industries in the 
upper harbour, the work of the dredging plant has been concentrated to a considerable 
extent in improving that part of the harbour fronting the launching ways of the 
C'ameron-Genoa Shipbuilders and the Foundation Company, with the result that the 
areas fronting the launching ways of both these yards have been deepened to 20 feet 
below low water. The removal of Turpel’s rocks Nos. 1 and 2 in the centre of the 
upj>er harbour has been undertaken, and where a former depth of 6 feet below low 
water obtained, there is now a depth of 20 feet below low water. The Ajax also 
dredged to grade a considerable area between the Victoria Machinery Depot and the 
Esquimalt and Nanaimo Railway bridge from depths of 16 to 19 feet below low water. 

Lower Harbour. — Hospital rock, east of Songhees point, was cut back about 80 
feet, giving this additional width at the point where the Canadian Pacific Railway 
ferry boats go astern before leaving the harbour. The channel lying south of the 
Esquimalt and Nanaimo Railway bridge was deepened where silting up had taken 
place and additional depth provided fronting the Hudson’s Bay Company’s wharf. 
The north side of the main channel between Songhees point and the entrance to West 
bay has been further improved during the year, resulting in an additional width of 100 
feet by the removal of rock from the south of Pelly island, and an increased width of 
150 feet has been provided between Pelly island and the entrance to West bay. 

The middle of the main channel immediately south of Pelly island was deepened at 
points where silting-up had taken place. At times when the dredges were not engaged 
on work of greater importance the work of providing an alternative channel to the 
north of Pelly island has been undertaken. A further improvement has been made at 
Shoal point resulting in an additional width of 100 feet and the original sharp turn 
for vessels entering and leaving the harbour has been greatly improved and has enabled 
the beacon to be placed 170 feet southwest of its former position. A considerable area 
in West bay and fronting the outer wharves has been dredged by the Pacific Dredging 
Company to provide fill for the piers under construction at Ogden point.

207,483 cubic yards of hardpan, clay and 
silt were removed, making a total during the year, scow measurement, of 217,517 cubic 
yards. 

The main channel from the harbour entrance to James bay is now in a good 
navigable condition and the same applies to the upper harbour. When conditions allow 
the resumption of operations, the work of first importance is the further removal of 
rock to the south of Pellv island and the large area of rock between Songhees point 
and the E. & X. Railway bridge (Hospital and Discovery rocks).

DRV DOCKS. 

CHAMPLAIN DRY DOCK. 

The rock excavation was completed by the end of October, 1917, to its full depth 
and width, except for little trimmings on top, which will be done next year. 

The total quantity of excavation, this year, amounted to 7(1,100 cubic yards. 

The concrete walls of the dock were completed from station 7 + 25 up to station 
0 + 90, except for the timber slide in the first part of the dock, and from section 0 + 90 
to 0 *f 00, the walls on each side are more than half completed- The bottom of the 
dock is completed to station 0+90. Early in the spring, they completed the pump- 
house foundations. The concrete work could have been completed at the head of the 
dock but owing to unusual cold weather and owing to the testing of the floating cais- 
son which took more time than they expected, they had to stop work for the winter. 

During this year, the total yardage of concrete was 37,400 cubic yards in the 
doek proper and 5,500 cubic yards for the crib superstructure. 

During this season, two cribs were sunk, one 75 feet long at tin- north end of the 
western guide pier, and the other one at the end of the eastern guide pier. There are- 
two more cribs to be sunk, they were to be set in place this fall, but the dredge did 
not have time to clean the seats before the ice formation. 

The total yardage of cribwork amounted to 5,300 cubic yards. 

The Montreal Harbour Commission dredge started work July 2 and stopped 
November 16. During this period, the channel was dredged out to 30 feet at L.W.O. 
S.T. After the main dredging was done, cleaning up the channel bottom was started 
but as it was late the dredge had to leave for the winter. 

The only work left on submarine rock dredging for next spring is to qomplete the 
cleaning of the channel bottom and to complete the dredging of the two crib seats. 

The total yardage taken out this summer amounts to 34,400 cubic yards. 

In the boiler room and generator room, the balance of machinery has been all 
set up but not properly tested yet. 

The total work done in power house this year amounted to $20,980.70. 

Early in the spring, the foundations were completed and soon after, pump house 
was built. During the summer and the fall, the erection of the three main pumps and 
of the two drainage pumps were carried out. The tile work in pump house is partly 
finished and will be completed by the spring. 

The two caissons were completed this year, except for the floating caisson on 
which two motors for the pumps are not set and tested yet. ' 

All the sluice gate valves were set and coupled with their motors, and 70 per cent 
of the underground wiring of all sizes is completed. 

KSqri.M ALT GRAVING DOCK. 

During the fiscal year ending March 31. 191s, eighteen ships were docked for 
cleaning, painting and repairs, occupying the dock one hundred and ten days in all. 

Repairs were effected to Nos. 1. 2, and 3, main boilers by the use of an electric 
welding plant, which will add considerably to the life of each boiler. 

The coal bunkers, a building 57 by 32 feet, was removed and replaced bv a new 
building on concrete foundations. 

The latrines were also replaced by a new building 31 by 10 feet, constructed on 
concrete piers. 

Corrugated iron was used in the buildings constructed. 

The staff has been otherwise variously employed in attending to the docking and 
undocking of ships, the care of buildings nnd machinery, and special attention was 
given to the inside chambers of the caisson by scaling and painting. With the excep-

tion of some minor renewals, the plant is now in good working condition. The elec- 
trically-driven 6-inch vertical centrifugal pump installed in the past fiscal year has 
proved very satisfactory. The total expenditure to March 31, 1918, was $17,811.27. 


SELKIRK. 


Repair slip. — The repair slip was operated as usual this season. A total tonnage 
of 4,666 was handled Of this, 1,284 tons were departmental and 3,382 tons commercial. 

Total revenue from this plant amounted to $1,714.36. The expenditure is 
$3,512.21. 


LOCKS AND DAMS. 


Quebec. 


OTTAWA RIVER. 

Timiskaming reservoir. - 

Downstream from the Ontario sluices, all holes scoured in the riprap apron were 
filled with quarried rock at the beginning of the year. The spring flood ran 80,000 
e.f.s. maximum, and there was about 58,000 c.f.s. mean How for June. The result was 
that scouring in the heavy rock bed again took place, and re-filling was necessary, 
the work being done between December and March. 

The winter was extremely cold, and labour was poor and scarce, so the re-filling 
was slow until the middle of January. With increased force, better progress was 
made and as far as possible large rock was used, much of it being J cubic yards to 
14 yards. To end of January, 2', 800 cubic yards were placed, and in February, 1,500 
yards more up to the 18th, when track had to be taken up from below the Ontario 
sluices in order to feed storage. 

During March, 1,200 cubic yards of rock of large size was placed below the Que- 
bec sluices. Some excavation, chiefly boulder material, was done upstream from the 
Ontario dam in order to clear the approach flow-way of the ridges left bv steam 
shovel. All excavation was closed down in April. 

Timiskaming reservoir was filled to elevation 587-9 by May 25, 1917. and remain- 
ed so till the middle of September. Storage was given out for about a month, the 
surface falling about 24 feet. The autumn rains refilled the reservoir to elevation 
586, and from December till end of March about 10 feet was drawn off. 

Quint e reservoir. 

During the spring, arrangements were completed with regard to the flooded tim- 
ber around the reservoir and, after a conference with the lumbermen and power 
owners, it was agreed to fill the reservoir to elevation S64 as soon as possible. This 
meant raising the main road at several points in Latulippe township, and reconstruct- 
ing the bridges, the work being begun in June. All the bridges were finished by the 
winter but bad weather in this clay and the difficulty in securing teams and labour 
delayed the earthwork, so that it could not all be finished before freezing weather. 

Six pile trestle bridges were constructed, the total length being 800 feet, and 
1.850 feet of approach embankments were made. Resides this. 1.500 feet of road diver- 
sion was finished. 

The Latulippe settlers asked very unreasonable prices for the land flooded, and 
refuse to consider the offers made by Mr. Cross. Gradually, however, the greater 
number have accepted the very generous prices of $50 per acre for cultivated. $20 per 
acre for slash, and $5 per acre for bush land.

DEPARTMEN T OF PUBLIC WORKS 


9 GEORGE V, A. 1919 

At Quinze dam itself some repairs were made to the concrete piers, where spalling 
continues from time to time. 

The log drive was passed without trouble in the spring, and then a storage of 
about 5 feet in depth was held upon the reservoir. 

The reservoir was filled to elevation 859-5 by the end of May, 1917. The spring 
llood ran -12,600 c.f.s. maximum and a mean of 36,000 c.f.s. for June. About 41 feet 
of storage was used to October, then the autumn rain raised the surface to elevation 
S57 in the first week of November, whence it fell, to 1st January, 31 feet, and another 
foot to 31st March. The shallow channel between the islands at the head of the river 
prevented its being drawn down further, although the sluices were wide open. 

Kipawa reservoir. 

There was no work of any consequence done in connection with the dams. The 
reservoir was filled to elevation 884-9 on June 6, 1917, and remained about that level 
to the middle of July, whence it fell 31 feet to the middle of October. It was then 
fairly constant till 20th January, 1918, whence it was drawn down 5 feet to the end of 
March. The greatest outflow was 7,400 c.f.s., June 9, 1917, and the mean for June was 
4,700 c.f.s. 

Chaudiere Falls , Ottawa. 

The result of the storage may be judged from the following mean monthly flows 
at the Chaudiere mills: 

October 27,800 c.f.s. January 21,600 c.f.s. 

November. . 29,000 " February . . 19.300 ” 

December 27,000 " March 21,300 “ 

It will be seen that, generally, the flow was over 20,000 c.f.s., which is considered 
ample for all the manufacturers. Under natural conditions the flow would not have 
been half the above in February and March, as the winter was one of the coldest on 
record, and for ninety days there was no thaw. In February, there was a minimum 
of 17,300 c.f.s. due to anchor ice conditions in the Deschenes rapids. Under natural 
conditions anchor ice would have affected the flow all through the winter. 

Metering. 

Flow measurements have been continued at La Passe in order to fix the flow at 
that point with relation to the height of Coulonge lake. Meterings are also ljcing made 
to define the relation between the flow in the Calumet and Rooher Fondu channel, 
and the party also measured Coulonge river. Black river, and the Mattawa summit 
waters. 

From time to time, measurements are taken of the Gatineau. Rideau, and the 
main Ottawa at Besserer's Grove, the work being done by the party that rates the 
metering instruments at Dow lake. 

Another party is stationed at Carrillon. measuring the main river also the 
Lievre, Rouge, and North rivers. The measurements at this point, added to the 
measurements of the St. Lawrence at Iroquois, are for use in connection with Montreal 
harbour levels. 

In connection with maintaining Quinze reservoir, the flow contour elevation 864, 
has been surveyed through Beauneville township, and levels required for the road 
work in Latulippe township have been given by the same party.

fall, the fence around the property was rebuilt also last fall, renewing sheathing on 
apron of dam, rebuilding the two centre piers of the dam from low-water line, 
repairing timber slide, replacing roller and frame to lift stop-logs in slide by a pair 
of winches. Minor repairs to the Loekmaster’s quarters. 

Expenditure during the fiscal year, $5,906.95. 

RIVER ST. CHARLES. 

Lock's and Dam. 

Work performed during this fiscal year is as stated below. 

The completion of the fabrication of steel for the floating caisson for lower lock 
entrance. 

Excavation for the mattress on the north shore of the river above the dam. The 
material was removed by a suction dredge and pumped to the government property on 
the Limoilou side west of the Canadian Northern railway, to raise the surface to 
make it available for building or commercial purposes in the future. 

Permanent steel girders to carry the Canadian Northern and Quebec Railway 
tracks have been erected over the sluiceway openings in the dam to replace cribwork 
which has to be removed for the construction of the sluiceway and piers. 

Total expenditure for year, $101,174.56. 

YAMASKA. 

Yainaska, a thriving village situated on both sides of the Yamaska river, about 
eight miles from its mouth, where it empties in the St. Lawrence. Two miles below 
the village is situated the lock and dam built by the Department of Public Works in 
order to facilitate navigation on this river. 

Work of repair done by day labour, commenced on October 11, and was com- 
pleted October 31, 1917, and consisted in reconstructing the four upper tiers of the 
dam at the little channel and making a concrete flooring on top of the dam which is 
used as a roadway. 

In the execution of the above works 7,207 feet b.m. of timber, 60 bags of cement, 
and some iron were used. 

During the fiscal year 1917-1S, the expenditure was $671.15. 


Manitoba. 

St. Andrews Lock and Dam. 

The lock and dam was in operation from May 8 to November 29. 

In the month of August, it was found necessary to raise the curtains of the dam 
to remove brushwood, etc., to facilitate the better operation of the same. Owing to 
the small discharge of the Red river, canvas was placed at different points on the 
dam to prevent undue leakage. 

During the navigation season, a gross tonnage of 25,635 passed through the lock, 
and 530 small craft. Passengers to the number of 5,897 were carried. 

Excursion boats made daily trips on the water regulated by the dam. 


SLIDES AND ROOMS. 


Ottawa River Works — Ordinary. Repairs. 

North Chaudiere Station .- — A new guide boom was provided for the entrance t. 
the upper slide, the bulkhead of the slide was rebuilt, and the winches for raising the 


58 


ni:i’AKv<iK.\T or ithuc works

stop-logs were mounted upon a new frame. A temporary apron of timber was placed 
at the outlet of the lower slide to prevent the logs from being damaged by striking 
the rocky bed of the river at stages of low water. 

South Ghaudiere Station . — The expenditure at this station was for materials for 
repairs to the storehouses and guide booms at entrance to slide: the work having been 
performed by the slide master and his men. 


TRIBUTARIES OF OTTAWA RIVER. 

Gatineau River . — The repairs on this river consisted in placing extra screw bolts 
to strengthen the main boom and in repairing the boats and station-house. 

Madawaska River . — At the month of the Madawaska, the top of one of the piers in 
connection with the retaining boom was rebuilt. This pier is 14 feet by IT feet at the 
water's edge, and 11 feet by 13 feet at top, the height of the new work being 51 feet. 
Two fenders of 10-inch square timber were placed on the face of the pier. 

At. Arnprior the guide booms were repaired, and two of the piers at head of the 
- 1 ide were rebuilt from low water level, a height of 6 feet. One of the piers is 18 feet 
by 22 feet and the other is 15 feet by 16 feet. A cedar post was placed in each pier, and 
additional stonefilling was provided to fill the piers. 

At- the retaining boom at head of Calabogie lake, five piers were rebuilt from the 
water surface. No. 1. is 22 feet square; No. 2, 24 feet square; No. 3, 21 feet square: 
and Nos. 4 and 5, each 20 feet square. All the piers are battered so that the size of 
each is T feet less at top than at water’s edge, the height of the new work on each pier 
being 8 feet. 

At High Falls, tlie tops of four piers supporting the guide boom at head of slide 
were rebuilt. Nos. 1 and 3 are 20 feet square at the water line and 18 feet square at 
top: No. 2 is 26 feet in front. 121 feet in rear, and 181 feet on sides; No. 5 is 33 feet 
in front at base and 29 feet at top. 14 feet in rear at base and top, the length of the 
sides being 24 feet. The height of the new work on piers Nos. 1, 3. and 5 is 9 feet, 
and on No. 2 it is 101 feet. 

A new pier was also built at the lower bulkhead. It is 211 feet long and 5} feet 
wide, the height at lower end is 71 feet and at the upper end it is 2 feet. The sheeting 
on the pier dam between the two bulk-heads was renewed in places and some repairs 
were made to the main controlling dam. 

At Ragged Chute extra stonefilling was placed in the pier dam across the blind 
channel at head of chute. 

At Chain Rapids the. lops of two piers had to be rebuilt. No. 4 is 18 feet by 16 
feet at base and 16 feet by 14 feet at top; No. 5 is 18 feet square at base and 14 feet 
square at top, the height in each ease being 8 feet. 

ConJonfjr River . — Tn the spring of 1917, two breaks occurred in the slide at High 
Falls, one on 23rd April and the other on 5th May. <>n the former occasion, the 
longitudinal stringers broke while logs were running in the slide, and the superstruc- 
ture gave way for a length of is feet; the other break was caused by a rock slide Irom 
the mountain, which carried out a section 5(1 feel in length. I be damage was repaired 
ith all possible ha-te. s,, little delay was occasioned, in either case, to those using the 
slide. 

HI a ck River. A section of the High Falls slide, 137 feet in length, immediately 
below the bulk-head, was repaired, as the foundation had settled, causing the bottom 
,.f the slide to sag as much as 19 inches below grade at the centre of the bow. The 
-uperstructure was raised to position and properly blocked underneath, and damaged 
-beeting in sides and bottom of slide and decayed posts and braces Were all renewed. 
Iron bars were also placed on the curve to protect the sheathing.

SESSIONAL PAPER No. 19 

Reiewawa liiver . — (At the moutli oi this river, a pier was built to form a gap to 
allow small craft to pass through the retaining boom. The pier is 16 feet square and 
9 feet high. Another pier, the first below the wharf, was patched, as some of the top 
timbers were decayed. 

At Second Chute, fhe expenditure was for pine plank used in repairing the slide. 

At Crooked Chute, the camp house was repaired, and an addition was built. 
Sections of the floor of slide at the outlet and just below the bulk-head were renewed 
with 6 inch material. Posts were replaced in the slide; a course of timber was placed 
on the tops of the foot and entrance piers and five stop-logs were made for the bulk- 
head. The main controlling dam was repaired, it having been found necessary to 
renew several of the cross-ties and longitudinal timbers. 

At Thompson’s rapids, the outlay was for timber for repairs to the retaining dam. 

At head of Lake Traverse, the tops of two piers of the boom were rebuilt. They 
are each 16 feet square, battered to 12 feet square at top and 8 feet in height. Each 
is supplied with a snubbing post. 

At Poplar chute, a glance pier, 48 feet long, 8 feet wide and 5 feet high, had to 
be restored. The pier is close-work in front and open in rear. 

At McDonald’s chute, the main governing dam, 110 feet in length, to the south 
of slide entrance, was rebuilt. This is a flat dam, 9 feet high at rear with an average 
face of 16 feet. Two piers at the guide boom required attention; the one on south 
side at upper end of boom, 13 feet by 16 feet and 12 feet high, was altogether renewed, 
and the other, also on the south side and immediately above the slide, had its top 
timbers repaired. Four lengths of guide boom were taken out of the water, damaged 
ends were sawn off and new holes were bored well back in the solid timber for the 
connecting chains. 

The amount chargeable to Cedar lake station was for timber for repairs to the 
retaining dam. 


GENERALLY. 

(latineau River . — Eleven tons of one-inch diameter B. B. iron chain were provided 
and placed on the government boom near the mouth of this river, to guard against 
excessive strain, when the water in the river is at spring flood. 

CopJongc River . — At five different places, portions of the High Falls slide were 
rebuilt from the foundations. The old timbers of the latter were removed and laid in 
the new to receive the bents which vary in height from 10 to 16 feet; twenty-eight new 
bents were placed and five old ones were repaired and strengthened with extra bracing; 
126 posts with the usual braces, 83 cross sills and sheathing in sides and bottom at 
these five places were all renewed. There were two lengths in the second section. 72 
feet and 108 feet ; two in the third section, 144 feet and 116 feet ; and one in the fourth 
section, 75 feet. At other places in the slide, it was found necessary to patch the 
sheathing in sides and bottom, also to replace some of the posts. Three stay chains, 2 s 
feet, 25 feet, and 21 feet in length were set to steady the superstructure. One end of 
each chain is connected to an eye bolt which passes through the stringers of slide, 
while the other end is made fast to an anchor bolt sunk in the solid rock on the 
side of the mountain. The posts sup]x>rting the bulk-head of slide were repaired and 
eleven bars of flat iron were secured to the sides of the head piers, to guard against 
abraison from passing logs. One of the guide booms, 125 feet long, was water-logged, 
so two lengths of timber extending the whole length of the boom were placed on top 
•to give greater buoyancy, the upper portion of the boom being planked with 2-ineh pine. 

ST. MAURICE RIVER. 

All movable and immovable government properties used for the purpose of trans- 
mission of timber, on this river, is leased to the St. Maurice Biver Boom and Driving 
Co., which lease took effect on February 1. last.

FiEPAR TUEST OF Ft 111. IF WORKS 


9 GEORGE V, A. 1919 

Under supervision, the company maintained t)ie whole work in a very satisfactory 
manner and made several important improvements rendered necessary on account of 
the constant increasing lumber business on the river. 


BRIDGES AND ROADS. 


Ottawa. 

BRIDGES AT OTTAWA, AND ROADWAY AND BRIDGE APPROACHES IV OTTAWA AND HULL. 

Laurier Bridge. — The hand-rail on the top of the guard fence, on northern side, 
was renewed for the whole length of the bridge, the one on the other side having been 
treated in a similar manner previously. The old rail was of rolled steel and was so 
badly corroded that holes Avere eaten completely through the material. All the guard 
fence received a coat of paint. Considerable repairs were made to the sandstone pave- 
ment on both approaches to the la-idge; fully one-third of which was taken up and 
re-laid to grade on the western approach, while at the other end the worst places were 
attended to. All the pavement re-laid was grouted with cement. 

Chaudiere Slide Bridge. — The roadway of this bridge was cleaned, the guard fence 
on the western side was painted and the pavement was kept in repair. The cast-iron 
grating and drainage chambers were kept free of debris throughout the season. 

Union Bridge. — The roadway of the Union bridge was kept clean, the planking 
was patched, and the guard fence was repaired. 

Roadway and Bridge Approaches between Ottawa and Hull. — The pavement on 
this thoroughfare was cleaned frequently, and repaired. The wooden guard fence and 
pipe rail on the eastern side, from Union bridge to Hull, received two coats of paint 
while the gratings and weeper holes received proper attention throughout the year. 

During the winter, surplus ice and snow were removed from the roadways of the 
bridges and sidewalks, and the latter, when slippery, received a coating of sand to aid 
pedestrians who had occasion to use them. 

In spring, the usual drains were cut to carry off the surplus water. 

Ontario and Quebec. 

Bryson. — The work of repair to this bridge was renewing the roadway at both ends 
of the two main spans, with 3-inch pine plank. The portion repaired at the Calumet 
island end was 71 feet long; and that at the Bryson village end, 13. r > feet, the width of 
the planking in both cases being 191 feet, A wheel guard of 6-inch square cedar was 
laid at both sides and in the centre of the portions renewed. About 25 cubic yards of 
gravel were deposited at the Calumet island end to bring the roadbed even with the 
planking on the bridge. 

Chapeau. — The work at this bridge consisted in filling in behind the concrete 
retaining walls, on the northern approach, with stone and gravel, about 450 cubic 
yards having been used in doing so. The fill on the upper side is HO feet long, of an 
average depth of 2 feet and extends up the bank about 16 feet of an average. Tin- fill 
on the lower side is 104 feet in length, 4 feet average depth and extends up the bank 
an average of 20 feet. 

Rapides drs Joachims. — The pipe-rnil on the bridge across the main channel of 
the Ottawa river, having been disconnected through contraction, had to be joined 
again, and at another place on the same bridge, part of the piping was missing and 
was repaired by a new piece with a coupling. The wooden guard fences on both 
approaches to the two bridges were repaired where the hoards were broken or defective; 
24 pieces of 1- by 5-inch pine having been used for this purpose. 


REPORT OF THE CHIEF EMU SEER 


61 


SESSIONAL PAPER No. 19 

On the Ontario approach, a culvert collapsed and this necessitated the placing of 
two pieces of cedar, each 16 feet long. The roadway over the culvert was graded with 
gravel and stone. 

Four sign boards for the regulation of traffic were placed at both ends of the two 
bridges. 

MATAPEDIA IN TER PROVINCIAL HR I DUE'. 

The Matapedia Interprovincial bridge links the two shores of the Restigouche 
river, thus uniting the provinces of Quebec and New Brunswick. 

The work done during the last fiscal year consisted in the repairing of planks in 
a temporary manner, stopping the most dangerous holes in order to render the bridge 
safe for winter. More extensive and necessary work could not be done on account 
of weather conditions. 

PITTS BROOK. 

Pitts Brook is located in the Matapedia military road, about two miles from 
Ste. Florence de Beaurivage, in the county of Bonaventure. It is situated in that 
part of the road where there is no municipality to take care of its maintenance. 

The work done during the fiscal year 1917-18, consisted in the reconstruction of 
a bridge, 48 feet in length by 16 feet in width, placed upon two cedar abutments. The 
flooring is in 3-inch deals. 

HARR1CANA RIVER BRIDGE. 

Traffic Bridge at AmoSj Que. 

The Government of the province of Quebec was authorized by Order in Council 
of the 4th October, 1917, to proceed with the construction of a fixed wooden bridge 
across the Harricana river, at the village of Amos, Que. 

This bridge consists of two spans, continuous over the centre pier, of a total 
length of 304 feet, with approaches from the two shore piers. The latticed trusses are 
roofed over. Provision has been made for a clearance of 144 feet above high-water 
level, and for lighting the channel span. 

The bridge was opened to traffic in the late autumn. 

MUSKRAT RIVER (MEATH STATION). 

Canadian Pacific Railway Bridge. 

The Canadian Pacific Railway Company proceeded with the construction of their 
new bridge across the Muskrat river, in order to do away with the existing 600-foot 
trestle built skew to the stream, over twenty years ago, and which intersects the high- 
way bridge (O. C. June 15, 1912). 

Piles were driven to a great depth for the footing of concrete abutments; during 
the course of placing the ballast fills to said abutments, the work settled down and 
virtually disappeared while, at the same time, the river bottom on either side was 
raised several feet. As the new line for this diversion is built through marshy soil, 
the company found it necessary to purchase additional land and cut a new channel for 
the river, to which the steel span (plate girder 87 feet 2 inches long) has been removed. 
This new channel is located some 900 feet from the originally proposed location of 
bridge, and is to be maintained by the company. 

The new bridge and diversion track were completed in July, and traffic was 
diverted thereto on 15th August, 1917.

GRAND RIVER BRIDGE. 

Grand River bridge is a highway bridge over the Grand river at York, situated 
5 miles from Caledonia. Seneca flag station is the nearest freight point. 

The spring flow of ice injured the upper posts in each bent of the timber trestle 
at the west end of the bridge; work of repair consisted of renewing broken planks in 
the decking; of renewing S00 feet b.m. and replacing eight 10 by 10 posts in the 
trestle, and these posts were braced to the other posts in the bents with 1 by 8 braces. 

The work was finished March 30. Expenditure, $345.52. 


Alberta. 

EDMONTON. 

The city carried out repairs to the roadway, which included putting in steel flange 
rails along the roadway and street car tracks and in making the necessary renewals to 
the wood block pavement, as well as, some other minor repairs. 

The cost of this work to the department was $536.16, it being one-third of the 
total cost, as under the agreement with regard to the upkeep of this bridge; in the 
months of August and September last, this department put a small force of men at 
work clearing off the debris from the lower chords which had accumulated there from 
the roadway, and the sum of $30 was expended, and owing to some extra work which 
was necessary in repairing the flash boards below the roadway of the bridge there was 
expended the sum of $31.50. 


SPRAY RIVER. 

Repairs consisted in rock filling and riprap; the rook was obtained from govern- 
«ment quarry, and lumber from the Forestry department. 

Work was carried out by day labour at a cost of $436.72-

UEPARTMEXT OF PUBLIC WORKS 


9 GEORGE V, A. 1919 

CAPE BRETON LINES. 

The various lines have worked satisfactorily and with little interruption through- 
out the year. There has been no additional mileage and no changes in staff. Amounts 
for repoling and general repairs were voted as follows: 

Xorth River Bridge loop 
Marion Bridge-Sydney 
Louisburg-Main-a-Dieu 
Big Bras d’Or-Upper Kempt Head 
Leitches Creek-Sydney 
McCormicks-Brook Village 
and Whycoeomagh 
Gilliesville-South Side 
East Bay 

Eskasoni-Grand Narrows 
Grand Narrows-Shenacadie 
Big Bras d’Or-Englishtown 
Louisbu rg-G abar us 
Gabarus-Marion Bridge 
Gabarus-Enon. 

The work was carried on under the supervision of the general repairers of the 
respective sections. The revenue shows an increase of $1,218 over that of last year. 

BAY OF FUKDY. 

All land lines have been free from interruptions during the year, except a section 
of the lines at Grand Harbour consisting of six poles which went down during a gale 
on October 30-31, but the poles were reset without delay, and there has been no 
further interruptions on this Flaggs Cove-Seal Cove telegraph line throughout the year. 

On August 11th, cables number two and one, Whale Cove-Meadow Brook, and 
Longs Eddy-Herring Cove, developed leaks. The Tyrian arrived September 8th and 
found a bad leak at Dunns Beach, Campobello, on cable No. 1 in a splice underneath 
the cable hut. Mr. McDonald also took out a bad leak in cable No. 2 at Whale Cove 
at high water mark where the armour had been crushed, the core was exposed through 
a split in the rubber insulation, this cable would work with the telephones, but only for 
a few minutes using Morse, the reason I believe, was on account of the electrolytic 
action caused by the fishermen throwing pickle on the beach where the cable runs by 
a fish-house door, when the telegraph current was put on caused the copper to corrode 
and throw a short. 

All lines worked well up to December 15th, when interruptions occurred on Three 
Sister Island-Gannet Rock, and Duck Island-Nantuckot cables both being broken, the 
former about three quarter mile from Gannet, and the latter mid-way between the 
islands. The Tyrian completed repairs on Gannet Rock 1st March and Duck Island 
on 27 March. White Ilead-Cheneys Island cable reported interrupted on the 21st 
March, was also repaired at this time. 

Cable No. 1 Longs Eddy-Herring Cove was reported heavily grounded on January 
21st was restored to working order by Mr. McDonald who found a ground in the cable 
hut at Herring Cove. 

The Tyrian left here on March 27th and all cable lines are working good. 

The Seal Cove-South Head, and Big Wood Island land linos will need some 
attention in the way of insulators; and one or two poles which nre badly decayed will 
need to be replaced in the course of the summer. 

All lines and cables in this district are working well at the present time.

SESSIONAL PAPER No. 19 

MAGDALEN ISLANDS. 

The mileage is the same as last year ; no new offices have been added except a few 
private connections : — Dominique Arseneau (agent for the Gorden Pew fisheries) 
connects at Father Turbide, Mr. Arseneau pays when he uses the line; another box 
was put at Messrs, ffm. Leslie and Co. who bought Mr. Ballantyne’s telephone set, 
Messrs. Leslie has the connection at my office and Mr. Ballantyne’s line formerly 
connected here is presently unoccupied but demand for the use of this line has 
been granted Mr. F. W. Leslie who will soon have a connection also to my office. 
Another private attachment was also made at Mr. Brasset sub-agent for La Banque 
Rationale. 

Meat Coye cable was interrupted October 11, but was repaired by the S.S. Tyrian 
October 27. Again December 7, the Meat Cove cable was interrupted and has re- 
mained so. The wireless telegraph is handling the traffic but useless to say that a cable 
to the mainland principally to Prince Edward Island would be more advantageous. 

The Brion island cable has been working well all the year round. It is indeed a 
great thing for the fishermen to have this telephone connection in good condition, this 
island being one of our greatest fishing ground. 

The Entry island line has been in great working condition except for a month 
when a gale of wind with thunder and lightning caused trouble which has been 
impossible to locate yet. The general repairer and linemen are doing everything to 
clear up the situation and it is expected good communications will soon be established. 

Notwithstanding war conditions the traffic is increasing, we have double the 
business we had when war started that is to say the revenue is twice larger. 

There is now a large demand for connections to the mainline, these additional 
connections must of course add a surplus of work besides every new connection crowds 
the present system which is already overtaxed and unless a central is established with a 
bigger staff with better wages given, any further connection of any kind must abso- 
lutely be limited if any sort of public satisfaction can be expected. 

ANTICOSTI ISLANDS. 

No additional mileage since last report; Fox Bay Station still closed during win- 
ter months, but in connection by telephone with Heath Point office during the fishing 
season ; from thence, business is transmitted on telegraph line. 

Last season, as per agreement with the Department, arrangements were made to 
build four new camps along the island for the use of repairers, which camps are of the 
utmost urgency; owing to inability to get suitable boards down here, we were unable 
to have these camps built. I hope the department will be able to forward, this season, 
to South Point (being central place where camps have to be erected) the boards, so 
as to enable us to erect these camps. 

Temporary repairs were made to old camps so as to shelter repairers during last 
winter. However, windows, doors, sashes and frames were made ready and as soon 
as the boards are landed at South Point, carpenters will be sent down to build these 
camps. 

Stormy weather has again played havoc with our telegraph poles. A few have 
been washed to sea and a good number fell on the beach. I am pleased to say that 
our land line has been the whole year round in good working order with the exception 
of an interruption between Heath Point and South Point stations which lasted from 
October 23rd to November 13th. 

The Gaspe. — South West Point cable, I am glad to say, is working very well ever 
since repaired by the staff of cable-ship ss.“ Tyrian ’’ in May, 1913. 

The North Shore cable became again interrupted 'on October 15th, 1917, and is 
still out of working order. The cable-ship “ Tyrian ” was over last fall, but owing to 


72 


ItFPARTVKXT OF FI HUC WORKS 


9 GEORGE V, A. 1919 

rough weather and lateness in the season, she was compelled to go back without a 
chance to repair it. 

The number of telegraph stations is the same as reported in my last report, viz. : 
eight in number. All the members of the staff are the same. 

NORTH SHORE ST. LAWRENCE LINES. 

East of Bersimis. 

The line worked continuously, the interruptions being few and of short duration 
and local character. 

No change of importance has been made in the agencies during the year, Miss 
Mary Chevalier of Bonne Esperance died in January 11)17 and was replaced by Miss 
llella Chevalier. 

The accommodation office at Shelter Bay, 1) miles east of May Islands was tem- 
porarily closed on May 10th (1917) and accommodation office at Manitou .'5 miles west 
of Riviere aux Graines has been reopened on October 21st 1917. 

A new telephone line was built at Natasliquan in the month of September, 1917, to 
establish communication between the two villages there, a distance of five miles. In 
October 1917. at Aguanus one mile and a quarter of telephone line was erected on the 
existing poles, to accommodate the people residing on the west side of the river. 

li es/ of Bersimis. 

General repairs were carried on throughout this division, the various lines working 
satisfactorily. No additional mileage and no change in staff. The revenue shows n 
slight increase over last year. 


QUEBEC COUNTY LINES. 

The revenue shows an increase of 40 per cent over the previous year. The lines 
worked satisfactorily and were maintained in good repair. 

QUARANTINE LINES. 

As in previous years, many of our cables were broken by ice and other causes. 

The Crane Island-Montmagny cable raised on November 15, 1916, was relaid on 
May 11, 1917, and worked well throughout the season. 

Under special instructions we proceeded to raise this cable on November 26, 1917, 
which we were unable to do owing to weather conditions and after much battling with 
the ice succeeded in reaching the St. Francois wharf with the bateaux and tug where 
they remained for the winter. On November 17, the cable was carried away by a gas 
buoy drifting with the ice. 

The Grosso Isle-Ste. Margaret island cable broken in December, 1916, was repaired 
in May, 1917. The lie aux Reaux-Grossc Isle cable was interrupted on December 22, 
1916. and being badly damaged throughout its length we reeled it up and repaired it 
ns well ns possible and relnid it on May 19. 

The St. Frnncois-Ilo aux Beaux cable was interrupted on December 22, 1916. was 
repaired in May. 500 feet of new cable having been added. 

One of the Ange Gnrdien telephone cables was interrupted on January 5, 1917, 
and repaired in May, 150 feet of new cable being added near Ange Gnrdien. On 
November 1R, the extension of the telephone line from Orleans Island to Grosso Isle 
was commenced, two spare cables north and south of He aux Beaux and a second wire 
strung on the Beaux pole line completing the circuit to Grosso Tsle where connection 
was made with the Crane Island cable.

SESSIONAL PAPER No. 19 

In July and August, 75 new cedar poles were planted on the Ste. Famille section 
and east of the St. Jean office to replace those broken by sleet storm in March. 

During the month of April, the military line was extended from Maheux Bay to 
St. Laurent wharf, this line being under the control of the Naval Department. 

On June 1st, the Agency at Ste. Famille was transferred to Mr. Joseph Premont 
from Mr. Nap. Piohette who resigned. 

| PELEE ISLAND. 

1st. Re-Cable: When repairing in June 1917, we found the cable damaged, but 
not parted, by ice shoves about six to eight miles off the mainland shore, where the 
water is about fifty feet deep. After being repaired it worked well until damaged by 
vessels on October 24, repair of such damage being completed November 12 ; it again 
worked all right until December 9, when it ceased working during a terrific storm 
when some vessels are supposed to have caught it in their anchors and broken it. By 
instructions from the Department, I am preparing to repair it as soon as ice and 
weather permit. 

2nd. Re-Point Pelee branch: Ihe Mersea Municipal Telephone system had this 
branch connected with their system through the Bell Telephone Coy s wires at Lea- 
mington during the month of December 1917. 

NORTH WEST LINES, SASKATCHEWAN. 

There has been a noticeable improvement over previous years in the proper main- 
tenance of the lines, partly due to the keen interest shown by all agents and most of 
the linemen, as well as to the C.P.R. Dynamo at Saskatoon, which proved most benefi- 
cial in attaining this gratifying result. 

A few interruptions occurred on the Saskatoon loop, but less frequently and of 
shorter duration than formerly. 

On the Moose Jaw-Wood Mountain line, interruptions were frequent during the 
month of March, business has been very satisfactory -on the whole, especially in view 
of existing conditions. 

Shifting line to roadway . — The sum of $5,000 was appropriated for the purpose 
of shifting the line to road allowances, of which $2,662.88 was expended in removing 
about 15 miles in the vicinity of Eagle Creek. This work had to be done in the latter 
part of November when the snow was on the ground, and this accounts for the expen- 
diture being somewhat higher than it otherwise would have been. 

Repairs and improvements . — Considerable repairs and improvements to buildings 
have been made at several points, and out of an appropriation of $2,400 for the pur- 
pose, $1,984 was spent as follows: — 

Green Lake $100; Onion Lake $:500; Glaslyn $149.22 ; Willow Bunch $87.75, and 
Battleford $1,147. Of this latter amount, $797 was used for the construction of an 
office for the District Superintendent, and the balance in painting the whole of the 
buildings on the premises. 

Wood Mountain line — re-poling . — An appropriation of $5,000 was made for the 
purpose of re-poling the Wood Mountain — Willow Bunch line, of which $4,681.65 was 
expended. This amount, was only sufficient to purchase the poles and to have same 
hauled to the ground. A further sum will be required to complete the work. 

Battleford — Isle-la-Crosse completion . — The sum of $811.71 was expended out of 
an appropriation of $1,600 to complete the line into the village. 

All the high poles were erected and everything else put in readiness; there 
remains now only the stringing of the wire across the rivers. Owing to the wire, 
insulators and brackets reaching destination too late to catch the last freighters for 
the North, it was found necessary to postpone the final work until the rivers open up.

No additional mileage. 

The usual general repairs were performed and the various lines gave efficient 
service. 

BRITISH COLUMBIA. 

Mainland. 

Business has been very satisfactory, although not showing quite as large an 
increase as last year. There were 83,013 messages sent and 80,568 messages received, 
with total revenue $30,270.53. This is gratifying, considering that during the year we 
have closed up twelve telephone offices betweeu Enderb'y and Vernon and Vernon and 
Penticton in the Okanagan valley, as per agreement with the Okanagan Telephone 
Company in April 1917. 

Thirty-one miles of new lines were built during the year. There still remains 
fourteen miles of poles to be set on the Arrow lakes, the poles having been purchased 
and delivered during the year 1917-18. On account of the appropriation not being 
available until October, the whole of this work could not be carried out, as the winter 
weather in that section sets in early and the work had to close down in December. 

There is fourteen miles of wire yet to be strung in on the Waneta-Pend D’Oreille 
line, the wire not being available last fall. This work will be completed just as soon 
as the wire arrives, and the balance of the appropriation is available. 

Thirty-three miles of line was repoled, fifty-two miles of pole line reset. 

KAMLOOPS TO KAMLOOPS SECTION' 464 MILES. 

(Via Nicola — Penticton and Vernon.) 

The line from Kamloops to Merritt, 61 miles, is in good shape and has caused very 
little trouble during the year, as it was all reset in 1916-17, and well guyed. At Mer- 
ritt and Nicola exchange, repairs and improvements were made to meet the services at 
these points. The section from Merritt to Princeton seventy-six miles was to have 
l een rebuilt right through, but on account of the lateness of the season before the 
appropriations were available it was only repoled from Princeton to Otter Valley 
nineteen miles. The balance of this section will be required to be rebuilt this year as 
the pole line is in very bad shape. The old poles having been reset twice already and 
only were twenty five foot in the first place, are now too short to use again. At Prince- 
ton on the local exchange several improvements and extensions were made to meet the 
demand for local service. At Copper Mountain, fourteen miles south of Princeton, a 
local exchange was established during the year with seventeen subscribers and one 
pair extra wires strung between Copper Mt. and Princeton for local use. Business has 
been very satisfactory at both Princeton and Copper Mountain. 

The section between Princeton and Penticton is in splendid shape, having been 
rebuilt in 1916-17. 

At Keremeos an extension was built during the year to. Similkameen, ten miles, 
and local improvements and extension on the Keremeos local exchange. 

The section from Vernon to Kelowna has been thoroughly overhauled, during the 
year, all poles that were fit were reset and new poles supplied where necessary. The 
spur, three miles to Okanagan Landing and the spur two miles to Oknnagan Centre, 
and the branch line three miles to Okanagan Mission were taken down and the poles

used in the rebuilding of the main line. The commission offices at these three points 
were closed as the Okanagan Telephone Company are now able to give them all the 
service required and connection is now made at Vernon to these points from the 
Government system. 

KAMLOOPS — MOUNT OLIE SECTION. 

(North Thompson — 86 miles.) 

Business has been very good from the offices on this section. In the month of 
September, a severe storm struck a portion of the line near Louis Creek and took down 
three miles of pole line. Repairs were promptly made and outside of this trouble only 
the ordinary repairs were necessary. Next year the upper portion of this line between 
the Barriere and Chu Chua will require overhauling and poles reset. 

IIEFFLY CREEK— UPPER LOUIS CREEK SECTION — 37 MILES. 

During the year, the line was extended to Sullivan Valley (a spur six miles) and 
also to Dominion Forestry Cabin. Several more offices were opened during the year. 
The only trouble we had over this section Was by windfalls, the line running through 
timber for a considerable distance. 

KAMLOOPS TO SAVONA SECTION — 28 MILES. 

As this section iruns through open country most of the way very little trouble has 
been experienced during the year, and the line has been working very satisfactorily. 
Connection is made at Cornwalls with the Dominion Forestry Branch line to Green 
Mountain. 


KAMLOOPS GOOSE LAKE SECTION — 14 MILES. 

Important connection is made at Goose Lake office with the Dominion Forestry 
Branch line to Fish Lake at which point we have opened an office. This line is in 
very good shape as it was only built in 1916. The settlers .south of Goose Lake are 
very anxious to have the line extended to Long Lake District. An appropriation has 
been asked for to have the work carried out this year if possible. 

KAMLOOPS — ROSE HILL SECTION — 14 MILES. 

All the poles on this line were reset this past year, the line well guyed, and put in 
good shape. 

kamloops — revelstoke section — 218 miles (via Chase, Salmon Arm and Sicamous). 

This section is one of the most difficult to keep up that we have on our system. 
After it leaves Chase it follows a trail on the northside of Shuswap Lake to Celista, 
then crosses the lake by submarine cable to Sorrento. After the line leaves Enderby 
there is very little of this section that there is a waggon road to follow. There has 
been quite a number of snow-slides to contend with between Taft and Revelstoke, but 
in face of these difficulties there has not been very many bad interruptions and. what 
there were, were of short duration. To enable us to give a first class service between 
Kamloops and Revelstoke it will be necessary to extend the metallic circuit from 
Malakwa to Sicamous to overcome the heavy telegraph induction we get on our single 
grounded line from the C.P. Telegraph circuits. We were able last year to metallic

it from Revelstoke to Malakwa, which made a great improvement, and we hope we will 
be able to extend it through to Sicamous this year. Last fall, the section along the 
east side of Mara Lake was poled with thirty foot cedar poles mid the wire was trans- 
ferred from the trees, where it was placed when the line was built through in 1916, 
as. at that time, there was no road but it has since been built. 

WHITEMAN'S CREEK SECTION — 30 MII.ES. 

This branch line which is situated on the west side of the Okanagan Lake is con- 
nected to the main system at Kelowna. This line has proven to be a great convenience 
to the fruit growers and shippers on that side of the lake, as they have to depend 
entirely on boat service for their mail. 

PENTICTON — MIDWAY SECTION — 93 MII.ES — (via Osoyoos). 

This section of the line runs south from Penticton to Osoyoos at the boundary 
line, where connection is made with the P.T. & T. lines throughout the State of 
Washington. At M idway we connect to the B.C. Telephone Co.'s lines through to the 
Kootenay. There has been a marked improvement in business from the offices on this 
line during the year. 

MERRITT — MAMETTE I.AKE SECTION — 37 MILES. 

This extension which includes Cauford Spur was built through from Merritt as 
far as Steffens ranch in 1916-17. The construction was completed to Mamette Lake 
P.O. this past year. Three more offices were opened. This line serves a very important 
district and brings the settlers in direct touch with Merritt and other important points 
on our system. 

NELSON — TRAIL SECTION — 61 MILES. 

This line is a very important branch south of Nelson running through a timber 
and mining district, as far as Trail and serves a very useful purpose linking up the 
several intermediate offices with the B.C. Telephone Co.. system at these two points. 
Very satisfactory business was received during the year. An extension from Waneta, 
11 miles, east up the Pend D’Oreille Valley was constructed last fall, but as the wire 
has not yet arrived, no new offices have yet been opened. As soon as completed there 
will be tive additional offices, therefore, a considerable increase in revenue expected. 

PROCTER CRKSTON — VAHK SECTION'. — 90 MILKS. 

During the year, this line was completed right through to Yahk where connection 
is made with the Kootenay Telephone Co. linking up the Nelson and the Cranhrook 
districts. Five new offices were opened. The whole line right through from Procter to 
Yahk is in good shape and a very fair revenue received, considering the sparsely 
settled district along th«' Kootenay Lake between Proctor and Creston. 

THE ARROW LAKES SECTION — 85 MILKS. 

The line extends along the Arrow Lakes from Nakusp to Edgcwood built in 1913 
and from Cnstlegar to Deer Park built in 1916-17. The line wns also eompletod through 
from Deer Park to Benatn last June and offices opened at these points.

SESSIONAL PAPER No. 19 

Last fall, construction work was commenced on the intervening link between 
Edgewood and Renata twenty-nine miles, but only fifteen miles of pole line was 
completed, as the work could not be undertaken until late in October, the appropriation 
not being available. The balance of the line will be completed this year and will 
link up two important sections of our system and will give Nakusp and all intermediate 
offices connection direct through to Nelson and district. The telephone is a very 
important utility in a district such as the Arrow Lake, where they have to depend on 
steam boat service, and where the lakes often freeze up for several weeks during the 
winter months, but for the telephone service the people would be isolated entirely. 


GOLDEN- WINDERMERE. 

New telephone and telegraph rates were established last June throughout the 
districts which have been adopted by the Department. The telephone rates are based 
on air line mileage and a minimum of a three minute conversation with a minimum 
of 20 cents call, and 5 cents each extra minute for a distance up to twenty -four miles ; 
for twenty-five miles 25 cents, and for every seven miles over twenty-five miles add 
5 cents up to fifty miles ; over fifty miles add 5 cents for every ten miles. This makes 
a very fair rate and is the same rate as adopted by the Okanagan Telephone Co., so 
that there is not a confliction of rates between the two companies between which there 
is considerable transfer of business. 

VANCOUVER ISLAND. 

The revenue shows an increase of 30 per cent over the previous year. No additional 
lines were constructed.

COLLECTION OF REVENUE. 


By E. T. SMITH. COLLECTOR OF PUBLIC WORKS REVENUE. 

For the fiscal year ended March 81, 1918, the large deficit in public works revenues 
dealt with by this office calls for an explanation. The revenue accrued from slides and 
booms was $40,122.87 less than for the previous year. In the year 1910-17, the revenue 
was $80,150.45 from the St. Maurice works. On the 18th February, 1917, these works 
were leased to the St. Maurice River Boom and Driving Association of Three Rivers 
for $1 per annum. They were to operate and maintain the works, collect the tolls 
established by Order in Council, and pay over to the Government any surplus of 
revenue over the expenditures mentioned. At the close of their financial year, their 
accounts showed that there was due the Government $30,910.33 for the year 1917-18, 
leaving, apparently. $49,240.12 of a deficit, but it must be borne in mind that the 
$30,910.33 was net revenue after expense of maintenance, etc., had been paid, while in 
former years we only showed gross collections, and no deduction for cost of operation. 
The company, however, contests our claim for this $30,910.33 on the ground that they 
have constructed certain works for which they should be allowed $20,073.25. It is a 
condition of the lease that any extensions or improvements made by the company were 
first to receive the approval of the Honourable the Minister of Public Works, and the 
cause of the dispute lies in this condition because the works for which they claim to 
be allowed credit to the above amount of $20,073.25, were constructed by the company, 
although notified that the cost of the same should not be deducted from the tolls they 
were to collect. It may be only proper to state here that in 1910-17 we had a surplus 
of $28,189.26 and in the previous year also a surplus of $19,812.10. and the larger sur- 
plus of 1917-18 was principally due to the small amount required for repairs owing to 
the good condition of the works. 

On the whole, excepting in the St. Maurice district, where the bulk of the wood is 
used for pulp and paper, it is not surprising that revenue from slides and booms should 
be smaller than it really has been for the last two years when we consider how diffi- 
cult it was to obtain man labour for production in the woods and driving the streams. 
Private boom companies have been obliged to increase their rates very greatly in order 
to make ends meet. Wo are, unfortunately, not in the same position as our rates of 
tolls are fixed, and as it has not been the practice to display in this report the actual 
cost of operation as well ns of revenue where works have in previous years yielded 
large profits, these would not be taken into account when considering the losses con- 
sequent upon war conditions which have prevailed during the past four years. Many 
large concerns have gone entirely out of business for the time being because they could 
not get satisfactory labour even at the high rates of wages and the high cost of sub- 
sistence which have prevailed during that period. 

In the matter of rents and sales accrued during the year, there was a deficit of 
$04,858.92, but the collections showed an increase of $1 1,470.07. This increase was duo 
to considerable large sums received in final settlement for properties expropriated 
in Ottawa. The decrease in the amount accrued is principally due to the properties 
which formerly yielded considerable revenue having been taken over for Government 
uses, and partially to the fact that in the previous year there was quite a large sum 
which enmo to account in the final settlement for many of these expropriated properties.

COLLECTION OF REVENUE 


79 


SESSIONAL PAPER No. 19 

The following is a brief summary of the revenue dealt with by this office: — 

During the year 1917-18, the revenue accrued from public works shows a decrease 
of $103,416.01, being $188,900.10, while in the preceding year it was $292,316.11. The 
collections also show a decrease of $67,912.39, being $188,877.18, while in 1916-17 they 
amounted to $256,789.57. 

The revenue accrued from slides and booms was $57,073.14, or $40,122.87 less than 
for the year ended March 31, 1917. The collections were $26,187.92, or $70,954.24 less 
than for the previous year. The outstanding uncollected revenue from slides and 
booms is $30,885.22 greater than in 1916-17. 

The graving docks yielded $56,484.16, or $1,565.78 more than in 1916-17. 

Sales and rents collected amounted to $106,205.10, being $11,476.07 more than in 
the preceding year. 

I now submit the particulars in detail, relative to the several services under their 
respective heads. 


SLIDES AND BOOMS. 


OTTAWA DISTRICT. 


The tolls charged up amounted to $25,877.65, or $9,826.68 more than in 1916-17. 
The number of sawlogs that passed through the works was 3,575,739, or 1,059,364 
pieces more than the previous year. Of square timber there was none. 

All the revenue accrued during the year was collected. Of the dues accrued since 
July 1, 1889, when this department took over the collection, there remains uncollected 
$9,161.61. Of the dues accrued before July, 1889, there still remains $56,805.65, all of 
which should be written off. 

The accounts for the Ottawa district stand thus: — 


Dues accrued during the year to March 31, 1918 $25,877 65

Herewith are statements in detail. 

No. 1. — Statement of the number of pieces of square timber, sawlogs, etc., which 
passed through the Ottawa works during the year ended March 31. 1918. 

No. 2. — Statement of dues accrued from each of the slides and works of the 
Ottawa district during the year ended March 31, 1918. 

Apart from the two accounts amounting to $1,044.68, all the revenue from the 
Ottawa slides and booms, since I took charge in 1889, has been collected, excepting 
such as should have been written off long ago, or a few items in dispute which I 
expect will have to be forgiven.

nEr.UtTilKXT OF PUBLIC WORKS 


9 GEORGE V, A. 1919 

The number of sawlogs which passed through the works during the past year was 
1,059,364 more than during the previous season, and there were S. 862 -32 cords of pulp- 
wood less than in 1916-17. 


ST. MAURICE DISTRICT. 

The revenue accrued from this district was $30,910.33, being $49,240.12 less than in 
1916-17. The apparent discrepancy between the decrease in revenue and the large 
quantity of logs passed through the works is explained at the beginning of this report. 
With the exception of an item of $3,709.62 dues of 1909-10, disputed, all the dues 
accrued in this district since I took it in 1892 have been collected until this year 
when the above $30,910.33 is also disputed. 

The amount outstanding prior to July 1. 1S92. remains unchanged, viz., $14,481.49, 
and should be written off. 

The number of pieces of all kinds of timber that passed through the works was 
equivalent to 10,658,533 pulp and sawlogs, or 186,542 pieces less than the previous year. 

NEWCASTLE DISTRICT. 

The dues accrued from this district amounted to $8.74, being $489.35 less than the 
previous year, which has been collected at this date. 

The totals outstanding on March 31, 1918, amounted to $3,565.63. of which 
$3,521.19 should be written off in accordance with a judgment of the Exchequer Court. 
$35.70 will also have to be forgiven, the debtor being hopelessly insolvent at the time 
of his decease. 


Saguenay district. 

The dues accrued during the year ended March 31, last, amounted to $276.42, all 
paid but $20, being $220.08 less than in 1916-17. 


GRAYING DOCKS. 

ESqUIMALT GRAVING DOCK. 

The revenue from this service was $15,541.65, being $1,930.43 less than the previous 
year (see statement No. 3). Of the 109 days the dock was occupied during the year, 
it was used for 27 days by IT. M. and C. G. vessels. 

The total number of vessels docked was 19, of 52,550 tons. 

LEVIS GRAVING DOCK. 

The revenue was $3,013.04 more than for the year 1916-17, being $29,228.15 (see 
statement No. 4). During the season of navigation, the dock was occupied for 180 
days by 20 vessels of 41,665 tons. 

During the winter of 1917-18, it was occupied by ss. John 8. Tliom and Dredge 
Fruhling. 


KINGSTON GRAVING DOCK. 

On May 1. 1910, the Kingston Shipbuilding Co. took possession of this dock under 
lease, the rental of which, $10,000 per annum, was payable nt the end of each year. 
One of the conditions of the lease was that they should erect and keep in running order 
a repair plant, but this business, they claim, did not come up to expectations. On the 
contrary, it resulted in serious losses, and rent was reduced to $5,000 per annum from 
the 1st May, 1917.

SELKIRK REPAIR PLANT. 

During the last fiscal year, the revenue was $1,714.30, being $533.17 more than the 
previous year. The slip was occupied for 674 days of the season of navigation by 40 
vessels of 4,750 tons (see statement No. 5). 

RENTS. 

During the year 1917-18 the revenue accrued from Government properties has 
been, from rents, sales and interest, $75,342.80, or $64,858.92 less than the previous year. 

The account stands thus: — 


Balances from previous years $ 69,159 20

Making $144,502 00 


Collected $106,205 10 

Balance, March 31. 1918 18,954 89 

Written off 19,342 01 


$144,502 00 


The amount written off, namely. $19,342.01, is composed of commission on collec- 
tion, cost of maintenance, allowed in lieu of repairs, or cancelled on account of 
poverty, as well as a number of items which have been on the books for years, some 
of them dating back to 1880, the parties owing the same have disappeared through 
death and otherwise and leaving no tangible assets. 

The amount apparently uncollected, $18,954.89, seems to be large, but $10,600.62 
of this is composed of tvvo old items, one for Dunnville Bridge, Ont., and the other 
the Dundas and Waterloo road, which business came to this department from the 
Inland Revenue Department in 1909. These items will be carefully looked into and 
possibly before the end of the current year some decision may be arrived at in regard 
to them. As for the balance, $8,354,27, much of this has been paid or settled since the 
close of the last financial year. 

In the administration of these properties there are serious obstacles to obtaining 
as favourable results, rentals, etc., as compared with the same property in the hands of 
private individuals. The latter can make terms, periods of leases, etc., as they see fit, 
but we cannot give any assurance in most cases for more than a thirty-day-term, as we 
do not know when some of these properties may be required for Government purposes. 
Hence, we cannot expect to obtain as good rentals as parties who can give a lease for 
one or more years, and I may say here that this condition makes it difficult for our 
agents to retain the tenants we may have. The four agents who look after the 
Wellington street property have done their work well, and T do not anticipate much loss 
of rent, except perhaps from unavoidable misfortune to some of our tenants. 

The following is a summary of rents collected from public properties during the 
year ended March 31, 1918, viz.: —

number of Canadian works of art to be purchased, so that the loan exhibitions had 
not suffered from lack of material. The application by the trustees for an appropria- 
tion of thirty thousand dollars ($30,000) for the current year, however, was not 
granted, and the main Parliamentary Estimates included no more than eight thousand 
dollars ($8,000), sufficient for the running expenses of the National Gallery, including 
salaries and upkeep of possessions. Upon further application by the trustees an addi- 
tional sum of ten thousand dollars ($10,000) was appropriated in the Supplementary 
Estimates and the annual grant totalled eighteen thousand dollars ($18,000). 

The following regular annual loans of works of art were sent out during the 
year: St. John. N.B., twenty-seven pictures; Sherbrooke, Que., twenty-six pictures; 
Fort William, Out., twenty pictures; Winnipeg, Man., twenty-five pictures; Regina, 
Sask., twenty-one pictures; Moosejaw, Sask., twenty pictures. 

Arrangements were also made for a regular annual loan to Halifax, but this had 
to be cancelled owing to the Nova Scotia Museum of Fine Arts building being seriously 
damaged in the explosion. 

The following special exhibitions of works of art were arranged: — 

Loan of thirty-three lithographs to Halifax, N.S., November, 1917. This loan 
was on exhibition only four days owing to the building in which they were exhibited 
being destroyed by the explosion. Fortunately only slight damage was done to the 
lithographs. 

Loan of sixty-nine drawings to the Art Association of Montreal, December, 1917, 
to February. 1918. 

Loan of “Charity” by Frank Rrangwyn, A.R.A.. P.R.B.A., to Madeleine de Ver- 
cheres Chapter, I.O.D.E., for their exhibition of paintings at the Chateau Laurier, 
November 29 to December 3, 1917. 

Loan of nine pictures to the Central Canada Exhibition at Ottawa, September 8 
to 15, 1917. 

Loan of seventy-five Steinlcn lithographs to the Art Museum of Toronto during 
February and March, 1918. 

Loan of thirty-one pictures to the Western Canada Fairs Association from .Tune 
to August, 1917. The circuit included Calgary, Edmonton, Brandon, Regina, Saska- 
toon. I’rince Albert. This loan • afterwards went to Vancouver in August, 1917. 

Loan of “ Dieppe. The Beach. Grey Effect,” by J. W. Morrice to the Los Angeles 
Modern Art Society, Los Angeles, California, March. 1918. 

These exhibitions were all eminently successful, and the rapid increase of appli- 
cations for them is sufficient evidence of the growing desire for artistic knowledge 
throughout the country. 

The National Gallery Travelling Scholarship of one thousand dollars ($1,000) 
was judged for the fourth successive year by the Council of the Royal Cnnndinn 
Academy, and was awarded with the trustees’ concurrence to Mr. Manly E. MacDonald, 
Point Anne, Out.
