p.1 Found A Body - of chambermaid from burned str. Quinte.

How Did The Fire Begin? - In the examination of witnesses, in the enquiry as to the cause of the burning of the steamer Quinte, considerable evidence of interest was adduced. Capt. Christie first saw the fire burning about the boiler while Engineer Short saw it in the ceiling. He was in the engine room at the time. Thomas Kinsley stirred the fire last at Northport. There was a hand lamp in the fire hold then. The hands were not drilled at all in the work of lowering boats or in fire instruction. The commissioners meet in Deseronto next week.

A False Alarm - Capt. Noble, of str. Augusta of St. Catharines thought to have stolen coal from dock at Valleyfield, but it was common practice for captains to take it at night when no one was working, and pay later.
