p.1 A Dynamite Charge - About two months ago Capt. Collier, representing a western firm, purchased the machinery and iron in the steamer Empress sunk at the rear of Garden Island. While the ice was good he had the metal drawn to the city. Five hundred tons of the iron was sold to the K. & P.R.R. company, and the balance will be cut into short pieces and shipped away....

p.8 The Ferry Nearly Open - Capt. Allen; Pierrepont "has received new rails, decks and stanchions. Her sides have been completely sheeted with new lumber, and a brand new set of paddle boxes has been located. The sleeping compartments of the crew and the kitchen has been transferred to the hold. The machinery has also received a general overhauling, and is now in first class order. The crew will be the same as last year."
