Following lbe peruwl sf tbsftbovo

Ibe subject of tbe bridge, flsptsin
I'yliUH explained tbat ss s ssvigstor

Hs hsd sot rushed lo conclusions
wilb regard to tbe rustler, but bad
msde careful iuvesjlgstiom. lie hsd
msde ipecisl Visits to ths Second Narrows is his yscht, hss* eisnslned lbs
contour of ths ground snd hsd Svsn

ss powlbls fo drsdfs *t tmpoi N*.-
raws is, ll Firs, Nsrrows- If 11 is ils-
sired lu lesson Ihu current SI thai puinl
bu W||S decidedly uf opinion that the
government should undertake dredging
npsrstiuus in tbs! locality. TIlS WS
terlsl on the north sbqw uf lltu channel |a all till carried duwu by ths
neighboring creeks •nrl rssdily remov
able. |t |a quite possible lliul Ihe Ilia
terlsl removed would lie vsl||sh|s u>.
buildiug mslerisi, as bad been found in
"Uiei   huiburu,  lo  uin  persunul   know
ledgu.  This wuulil give the mstsrlsl s
commerclsl  value. -
Further ihun thu above, the dreilg-
iug of the .-iiu I, would lend In Improve tho current by giving il a direct
flow through llie passages ip lhe
bridge.   Hs understood thai sums oh
jeetion  hSS  been  UlSllo  to  the  locution
of the central pier, in the lalcsl plaus
siiliiniiieil, it being beld thst this pier
il ulnm n lucnled ip ihe deepest portion
of the uliiiiiiiul. In reply tq this, tbere
wss prububly a resson for the pier lielng plsced In tbst particular position
by ths engineers, il might be because
of the nature of the foundation or
■omo other reason. The dredging of
tbe channel would provide a means oi
overcoming the objections made, while
leaving the pier iu the location seteet
ail. ■ 'upturn I'vim" here drew s rough
sketch of Ihe shore line ou both sides
of |be lulet In illustrate ln« meaning.
Iliicuislug the question of tbe height
of Ihu Auor of Ihe bridge above bigb
wgter, Captain i'ylius explained lhal he
bad mentioned 71) feet in bit letter as
beiug the extreme ouliido limit, which
should be named. Instances iu Which
this height would actually be demand
Sd wuuld lie rare. Waterfront property lo tbe outer harbor was ileniued
to become so valuable tbat sll tbe
sawmills would doubtless be situated
shove Secoud Nsrrows. Ths hssvier
porliou uf the Iridic passing through
tha bridge would therefore consist of
tugi wilb lows of logi and of pleasure
craft. Ships would alio bave to psss
through fur loading purpuses anil if I
large dryduik were built sbuvc the
narrows, oueen linen might slso re
quire lo puss through lite bridge, liul
these laltes wore inilam-ei iu whicn
Ibe iwiug might lo be uied, while ss
for lbs other elssnei a height qf Afty
feel ubove bigb wsler would be ample,
for sll prsclicsi purposes.
Ai for Ibe width of Ipe span which
•bould be built Captain I'ybus roil
.'rule,I lbe position luken in Ids letter, le tbe effect Ibst s span of V.in
f. et would bs quite sufficient, but if
thst were increased 10 iM feel, sucb s
width would lie ample fur all purpuses.
The proposition lo build a permanent
obstruction in thc way of a dam acroai
lhe harbor at thai puinl, Captain Py-
but charucleri.eil aa ridiculous. Ile
■lid uot think Ihsl II was worthy terious
eomideraliun.
In concluding tbe interview Captain
Pybus reverted again Iq tbe greal bcuc
fiti whieb migbt lie secured from a lie
Vigatlou standpoint by menus uf dredging and expreued Ihe opinion Ibal Ibe
ui t em iuu of the I iniiuii mn goveruuieul

The ul un,iinni- and questions by

with the prupused dam al Hereiul Nar

he is altogether uppiited tu a dam ami
considers a bridge the proper structure
fur tiie location.
In tbe secund paragraph of his letter
Ciplaiu Pybus slinws the extravagant
i.m  of the demand! which Ihe Vuu
