The MINISTER OF PUBLIC WORKS.

A jetty 1,000 feet long is being built in the eastern portion of the harbour. The harbour commissioners built two wharfs there some time ago. They are low-level wharfs, but the wharf we are building Is a high-level wharf. As we have learned from the newspapers, the Canadian Pacific Railway are going on with very extensive works in that part of the city. Already, a very large trade is going there-the bulky trade seems to be locating in that part of the harbour. It is for the accommodation of this trade that the work has been undertaken. I think I may make bold to say that it will be one of the finest works on this continent. All the work above the water line will be concrete work.
