Some weeks ago ; the Committee on Improvement of the James River, falling to secure a bid on ! the repair work to the lock gates, the whole matter was put In the hands of City Engineer Boiling, who put contractor Nuchols on the work. Special timber wag ordered for the re-j pairs and the broken gate was taken <itt yesterday, it was found to bo almost beyond repair, and the com-; ! panlon set are believed to be in al-j most as bad condition. When the matter of securing tho' ! dock at the agreed prlco of JI'O.uOO from Use bond holders of tho William i !;. Trigg .Shipbuilding Company was ? under discussion, City Engineer Bol | ling submitted a report to the com ? mlttee. on Finance, showing that it ! would require 140,000 to restore the property tu g.1 condition. Tho work Included a new sot of gates; dredging '.in- dock out to a uniform depth of fifteen feet, rcpolntlng the stone work, removal of piles and obstructions, and general overhauling, without any structural changes or alterations In Its plan. While admitting that this work will have to be done, the Com? mittee on Finance made no apprlprl ntlon, beyond a small amount for i temporary repairs to tho lower gate?, which the former owners reported to be out of order, and the condition of which was the immediate reason of the closing Of Hie dock to shipping more than a year ago. Members of the James River Improvement Com? mittee say that It Is a mistake to spend any money patching the old guten when new ones will shortly be needed. It Is also considered n mis? take to make these temporary hurried repairs for the purpose of reopening tin- dock to shipping, only to close It again after n few months, or during another season, for tho more exten? sive repairs believed to be needed. The whole property Should he put In order, ready for permanent use, according to members of the oommlttoo, beforo Bhip-OWnorS me again Invited lo use It. To open It to trade for a few months, only to close it again, will give the city morn of a >ct back than were an emergency appropriation niade and tin- properly put In thorough working order beforo any use Is made of It.
