Sir. Eckstorm, when seen by Messrs. Mclnenly and Brallhwaitc, re- presenting the hockey league, was agreeable to the league's propos- er, it their plans could be proven as feasible, as they represented them. Mi Eckstorm was of the opinion that to rebuild supports for the roof that tbty would aot he an interfer- ence to the -skaters would prove too costly for the revenue that Would ac- crue at the gate. However, he said he would Interview Architect Whid- dlngton today, apropos the plans, as stated by the hockey league, and if the change would not prove too ex- pensive, he was perfectly willing that the supports be re-constructed to suit skating and hockey playing. There fore, it is up to Architect Whidding- ton for the present. Kingston, Nov.
