p.3 The Conqueror Case Goes On - In the case of Donnelly vs. Ross, today, Capt. Merriman testified that the Wrecking Company permitted Mr. Donnelly to make contracts. Mr. Henshaw agreed with this testimony, but added that it was in the company's interests that these contracts were made.

Davis' Shipyard - The steamer Ida left last night for Merrickville, will return on Monday next, and be hauled out and lengthened 10 feet, receiving a new stern with a view to increased speed. This will give four new staterooms.

Offord's yacht, the Victoria, is to be lengthened four feet, being made new from amidships aft. This will improve her speed and appearance. The two boats mentioned are new. These early changes show the importance of securing good models at first.

A steamer will be built in the yard for western owners this winter. There will be plenty of work there for men this winter.
