p.3 Got A Heavy Verdict - Mr. Roadley, steward of the Maud, was in Detroit last week, giving evidence in the Spartan insurance case. It appears that at the time of the accident of the Spartan, at Cariboo Island, she was chartered by a company. They abandoned her to the insurance company, who brought her to Detroit, repaired her and refused to pay the insurance claimed by the Richelieu company. The company sued the insurance men and got a verdict of $50,000.

Richelieu & Ontario Navigation Company - The annual meeting of the shareholders of the Richelieu & Ontario Navigation Company was held yesterday. Mr. Senecal stated that the Thousand Island Steamboat Company, which has opposed the Richelieu line for some years, could not run with the same connections as last year and he was confident that soon their boats would cease running altogether and the old line would have no opposition on the route. The following gentlemen compose the Board of Directors for the coming year: Messrs. L.A. Senecal; Alex. Murray, R. Cowans, Alpha Desjardins, J.B. Renaud, John McDougall, Hon. Henry Starnes and L.J. Lajoie.
