p.2 Inspection Of Vessels - Yesterday Capt. W.R. Taylor, of Kingston, was in Toronto on business connected with the Canadian Underwriters. The Globe says he has finished an inspection of the vessels in that harbour. He has inspected the vessels now in Kingston harbour, and those in all the harbours between here and Toronto with the exception of South Bay and Picton. This closes Capt. Taylor's work for the season among Canadian vessels, as he has instructions from the companies to proceed to Buffalo to do some business for them in the United States. Another official will be appointed to conclude the inspection of vessels in Canadian ports. The observation is made by Capt. Taylor that several vessels, which have not had necessary repairs made on them, will not appear as "classed" in the book. This will not hinder them from obtaining a proper registration when required repairs have been completed. Captain Taylor has now been eleven years in the service of the Canadian Underwriters.
p.3 Satisfactory Exhibit - The annual statement of the Richelieu & Ontario Navigation Company, Montreal, shows a net profit of $90,722 on the business of last season, amounting to six percent on the capital. A dividend of 6 % was paid and the sum of $22,400 added to the reserve fund. A very satisfactory exhibit.
