p.3 Good Thing To Remember - Captains of Canadian crafts should paste this order in their cabins. It has been issued by the U.S. government: "A foreign vessel putting into a port of the United States, either on the sea coast, or the northern, north eastern, or northwestern frontiers, and taking on coal or other stores, must enter and clear in all cases, whether the stay be less than 25 hours or not. The only exception to this rule is that of a vessel in distress, when instead of the usual stay, there will be made a protest under section 2,891 revised statutes. Coastwise vessels of the United States putting into port for coal and other stores will be governed by the laws relating to the coasting trade, but such vessels arriving from, or departing for foreign ports and taking coal and other stores must enter and clear."

Going To Chicago - Ross Cummings, yachtsman, with Atalanta.

Here & There - Clark & Robbins, of Sacketts Harbor, have bought the str. Flora Holden and propose running her in connection with the railroad to Henderson and Stony Island the coming season.

The vessel men are now debating the Bill before Parliament regarding masters and mates. Many of the features are severely commented upon. The legislation if carried out would make class differences.

The Pierrepont will run to Gananoque for the first part of the season, then she will attend to the Island ferry and the Princess Louise will run down the river, leaving the Cape Vincent trips to the Maud. When the pleasure travel begins the Maud and Princess will change routes. The Watertown will be held for emergency business.

p.4 Collinsby Items - The Collinsby Rafting Company have built two floating capsals (capstans ?) and repaired the engine house, docks and piers quite extensively preparatory to doing a large amount of work this summer.
