The enimt rs of the Liverpool duck board state that un der the worst possible conditions there is a depth of 30 fvet of water ovrr t'ue bar, tbe great sandbank having lioca rat down no is than nine feet, and tbe debris bodily transported &nd dampcO fax from the channel on a site wurre it can do no ponaiLle barm.
