A Heavy Fine Remitted - On November 23rd, 1882, the str. Thomson (sic - Thomas ?) Kingsford towed the O.M. Bond from Belleville about half way across Lake Ontario. On Capt. Pappa's return to Belleville his boat was attached and a fine of $400 imposed for violating the coasting law. Capt. Pappa paid the fine and entered a protest.
