British Whig (Kingston, ON), Feb. 11, 1886

p.3 How The Finances Look - The gross receipts of the Richelieu & Ontario Navigation Co. for last season show a decrease of $84,845. Of this amount the sum of $18,582 is due to the late opening of navigation, and the sum of $9,347 to its earlier closing, leaving $58,816 which the directors consider as lost directly by reason of the small pox epidemic. The current expenses were also reduced by $58,234. The value of the property will have increased to the extent of $117,300 as soon as the new steamer Hochelaga, the new boilers of the Spartan and the hull of the Bohemian are completed. The usual dividend will be saved.
Incidents Of The Day - The new boiler, built at the Kingston Foundry for the str. Pierrepont, will be placed in position on Friday.
