p.3 Suit In Marine Law - On the fourth day of November the tug M.J. Cummings left Fair Haven for Oswego with the canal boats (sic) Carrie and Cora in tow, laden with potatoes, apples and onions. It is alleged that the boat was to be towed back to Fair Haven in case of heavy weather. When about half way to Oswego the boat sprang a leak and was broken up by the heavy sea, the cargo being a total loss. A suit has now been commenced by Edward P. Loomis and Thomas A. Watson, of New York, against the tug to recover $5,100, the value of the cargo. A libel wss served on the tug last week by U.S. Marshall Tucker, and the case will be tried at Utica March 16th. It will be remembered that a considerable portion of the cargo floated to the Prince Edward shore, was picked up and sold on the owner's account.

Change of Boats - Spartan and Magnet to Georgian Bay, not Magnet and Passport as previously reported.
