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 Baptist’s Day, June 20, 1497. St. John’s 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; 1076 miles north-east of Montreal; 885 from Boston, U.S.A.; 488 from Halifax, N.S.; 1213 from Sandy Hook, New York; 1921 from Liverpool, 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. John’s harbour could be made the Gibraltar of the West, and Newfoundland, an ever-vigilant Lawrence, would become the great bulwark of Canada.

 

                St. John’s has one of the finest dry docks (owned by the Reid-Newfoundland Co.) on the American side of the Atlantic, situated at head of the harbor. The dock was built of wood at a cost of $600,000, length 600 feet, width of body, 132 1-2 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 storing of cargoes, also fully equipped machine shops and every requisite for the repairs of disabled shops, 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 by the north-east corner of Deadman’s Pond, thence to the north-east angle of the Penitentiary Grounds, thence to the north-west angle of the R. C. Cemetery, thence to Allandale Bridge, thence to the Mundy Pond Road to its junction with Hamilton Street, thence to Simm’s 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. John’s 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.

 

                The Anglo-American Telegraph Company, Ltd., head office, London, has cables connecting Heart’s Content, in Trinity Bay, with Valentia in Ireland, and lines throughout the Island; also cables connecting Heart’s Content with North Sydney, Cape Breton, thence connecting with the Western Union system.

                St. John’s is well supplied with shops and stores of every description, several of the most prominent having been built since the last fire, are departmental stores of capacious dimensions with fine plate-glass fronts, with all modern interior improvements.
