Description
Full Text

p.2 New Steamboat Regulations - As the Steamboat Inspection Act passed last session is defective in many particulars, the Minister of Marine will at the coming session introduce amendments, chiefly affecting vessels navigating the upper lakes. The new Act will provide for greater care being taken in granting certificates enabling steamboats to carry passengers, and regulations respecting the build of vessels, manner of loading, number of passengers to be carried, etc., will be more strictly enforced. All the steamboats carrying passengers must in future be commanded by Masters and Mates holding certificates of competency from some properly authorized Marine Board. Indignant protests against the new measure have been received from steamboat owners.

Personal Mention - Capt. John M. Barrow, for many years in charge of lake vessels and ship chandler at Oswego, is dead, aged 70.
