The work is on the beach and it is three miles away from the " sawdust wharf." Are these the only items recommended by the district engineer for the county of Kent? The sum of $800 seems to be a pretty small provision to meet the public works which have not yet been completed in that county. For example, Richibucto Cape, Buctouche Beach and Kouchi-bouguac Beach breakwaters yet remain unfinished. There is also Little Gully breakwater, for the construction of which a large sum was voted three or four years ago. A large amount of material in the shape of stone and timber and other stuff was hauled to the spot and left there. This winter part of the stone was hauled to Richibucto Cape breakwater, a few miles away, and the timber was hauled away for firewood. There are lots of works needing attention along the shore, and I hesitate to believe that the reason why these works have not received attention is because of the change made in the representation from the county of Kent.
I prefer to think it is due to war-time necessities.
