Full Text

p.8 Personal Mention - Capt. T. Donnelly left this afternoon for the west. He has with him the drydock memorial, to be presented to the government asking that the drydock be located here. Signatures to the document will be solicited in Belleville, Whitby, Port Hope, Cobourg and Port Darlington.

Incidents of the Day - The electric light will be used on Calvin's new steamer Armenia.

Alds. Muckleston and McIntyre, G. Richardson, A. Gunn and probably others, leave tonight for Ottawa to urge upon the government the enlargement of the St. Lawrence canals and the deepening of them to fourteen feet. The deputation will also ask that the canal tolls be levied this season the same as last year on through cargoes to Montreal. It is just possible the drydock scheme will also be pressed.
