p.2 Personal Mention - Capts. McMaugh, Anderson and Moore to command new C.P.R. steamers.

Mr. A. Chadwick, of Rathbun & Son, leaves for New York tomorrow in connection, it is said, with the insurance on the schr. Eureka, which sank last fall abreast of the Main Ducks.

p.3 The M.T. Co.'s Carpenters - On Saturday Capt. Gaskin notified the carpenters in the employ of the Montreal Transportation Company to meet in his office on Monday morning. The men were somewhat surprised and anticipated a reduction of wages. However, they all assembled, and were not a little astonished when told that he was not satisfied with the amount of work they had been doing. He thought they were robbing the Company, or words to that effect. The men became indignant and two of them left the service at once. They claim that as they have a foreman, who does not complain of neglect on their part, Capt. Gaskin should not be so fretful. Between the shovellers and the carpenters the Captain will have his hands full. The war goes bravely on.
