Trouble Getting Wharf
Now there ia more trouble in store
for the British atenmer Coolgardii
which went.ou the reef outside tin
harbor entrance last Saturday night
Her cargo has been ordered discharge!
so repairs can be made to her ateerinj
goar and bottom at the Inter Islam
dryiloek. but this rauuot be done uuti
the cargo -is all nut of the ship, ua i
is necessary to raise tier higher out o
the water than it is safe to do- with thi
2500 tons of freight aboard.
Considerable repairs, would have t
be made to the Coolgardie, ami th
necessity of discharging her cargo ha
caused her captain and agents an a. Mi
tionnl worry, as it ia impossible to ge
the use of one of the territorial wharve
for the storage of her freight while shi
is being repaired, and it is abo impos
sible to discharge into lighters.
While therp are denty of wlmr
facilities for the receipt of im-uium
freight there is not room ou any o
them to be spared for warehouse use
according to what ('apt. J. M. Thoiusoi
of the Coolganlie was told yesterday.
It is hoped, however, to secure per
mission from the Ouhu Railway & Lun
Company to discharge and store tin
cargo at the railroad wharf, by bei
agents, the Inter Island Coinpauy.
A second examination made of thi
Coolgardie yesterday morning ahowei
that her bottom, rudder and teeriii
apparatus had been pretty well bat
tered in the few hours she was on tin

did not believe she would be safe ft
