building the dyke across the marsh are
to be moved to the lake and will be
-need in but Id Ins- the Southern Pacific
loek. This work will take bat a abort
time. It is generally believed that as
soon as the docks are completed we
, dredges will be used in constructing
the arade for the extension. . It -will
be necessary to cross Bereral miles of
