This Is what he ?ay?: "In the discussion now koIiik on In relation to the timber drydocks In the Navy Yard, the only point to which the luglliaailni Board has ad <'.r? eoe?

It goes without saying that the entire ?oil of the Navy Yard Is saturated up to the level of high tide, and that, given an opportunity, the water ?rill flow through any crevlee with the velod'y du? to the head of water .r. in i.ther wOfda, the distance of the leak below high tide.

But the sid?s ar?? protected by a puddle-wall cov ? red on the fronts with timb?r steps or altars. The material which forms lb? backing to th?se puddle? WSl I is saturated sand or city refuse. BUCH as bal? last, cellar dirt and street swe<;ilngs. is it any wonder that this material has settled or shitted and brokenu puddle-walla and allowed the wster hel?l In the saturated mateiial to flow in through the broken puddle-walls'.'
