ST. JOHNíS (City), the capital of Newfoundland, situated on the Peninsula of Avalon, the most eastern seaport and city of North America. The city is built on the slope of a hill overlooking one of the most secure harbors in the world. One mile long by one-quarter mile wide, completely landlocked and sheltered from every wind. The entrance through the "Narrows," bordered by lofty, rugged hills, with steep shores, is in its narrowest part about 330 yards wide. It has deep water on both sides. Within the harbor there are 16 or 17 fathoms, gradually shoaling to the anchorage to 7 and 8 fathoms. The anchorage is good, and the harbor capable of receiving the largest ships afloat. There are a number of excellent wharves, both on the north and south sides.

The city received its name from having been discovered on St. John the Baptistís Day, June 20, 1497. St. Johnís is the centre of a large portion of the trade of the Island, which is 1,640 miles from Valentia, Ireland, this being the shortest distance between any two seaports of Europe and America: 1,076 miles north-east of Montreal; 885 from Boston, U.S.A.; 488 from Halifax, N.S.; 1,213 from Sandy Hook, New York; 1,921 from Liverpool, Eng.; 2,0060 from London, Eng. The "Narrows"before mentioned were at one time strongly fortified, but the fortifications have been allowed to go into decay. Should the Mother Country again fortify the place, the entrance to St. Johnís harbor could be made the Gibraltar of the West, and Newfoundland, an ever-vigilant Lawrence, would become the great bulwark of Canada.

St. Johnís has one of the finest dry docks (owned by the Reid Newfoundland Co.) On the American side of the Atlantic, situated at the head of the harbor. The dock was built of wood at a cost of $600,000, length 600 feet, width of body, 132 Ĺ feet, width of entrance, 85 feet, draft of water over sill, 25 feet. It has large and commodious stores and piers for the discharging and sorting of cargoes, also fully equipped machine shops and every requirement for the repairs of disabled ships, either iron or wood. In connection with the dry dock there is an up-to-date twin-screw wrecking tug. There is a floating dock on the south side capable of receiving a vessel 250 tons.

The city is bounded by a line commencing at Chain Rock, thence running to the north-east corner of Deadmanís Pond, thence to the north-east angle of the Penitentiary Grounds, thence to the north-west angle of the R.C. Cemetery, thence to Allendale Bridge, thence to Mundy Pond Road to its junction with Hamilton Street, thence to Simmís Bridge, thence following the centre of Waterford River to the Long Bridge, thence to Chain Rock, but not including any part of the south side.

St. Johnís is the seat of Government and the residence of the Governor, Commander-in-Chief and Vice-Admiral over the Island, and its dependencies, with an Executive Council of seven, a legislative council of fourteen, and a House of Assembly consisting of thirty-six members.

It is headquarters for all postal, money order and parcel-post arrangements; Reid Newfoundland Co. express; chief port of entry, with a number of sub-ports in out-harbors.
