The Storstsdt as she looks today.
An examination of the Storstsdt, the vessel which collided with the Empress of Ireland, shows that the
latter was probably ripped open by the sharp flukes of the collier's bow, and an inspection of the shattered
plates shows that the anchor was jammed in a position where it must have torn through the hull of the Em
press like a great can opener.
There were blood stains on the anchor point and portions of the battered steel surrounding it bore stains
of blood. These stains seem to bear testimony as to how some of the passengers met death

There should be a committee to which

moral atmosphere In the largest
stores have been reiterated s'o often,
the witness said that there are few
people who do not believe there is!
some truth in them.

Before the bids were opened, Man
ager J. P. O'Neill made a erhal pro
teat against opening them as he con
tended, the plans and specifications
made b the city engineer were not I
specific enough to fully advise the)
contractors as to the yardage in thei

stated that, if it were known just
how many yards of earth were to be I
removed, the contractors could bet
ter make their bids, as the quantity,
to be handled would affect the price i
The other contractors agreed with
him. but the commissioners took the
view that the engineer should uot be
required to estimate the exact yard
age but simply give tho plans of the
Improvement and a general estimate,
of the, amount of work to be done, j
The board of commissioners was of'
the opinion that If the contractors de
