p.1 A Chart Wanted - city council to ask gov't for chart of harbour showing shoals - they sounded it some years ago.

The Late J. Inglis - long-time purser on str. Myles.

Remarkable Record - The most remarkable arrival record is that of the str. St. Nicholas, Captain William Williams, master. The steamer arrived Jan. 1st, 1885, from Toronto and cleared Jan. 3rd; arrived again Jan. 13th and cleared Jan. 17th; arrived again Feb. 13th and cleared Feb. 17th. Of sailing craft the record of the Ella Murton, arrived Jan. 16th, 1890, cleared Jan. 17th, is the best. There was one small fish boat which arrived later, but it is not recorded. The arrivals and clearances of Captain Williams have been handsomely framed and will be hung up at the custom house. The same thing has been done with the arrival and clearance of the Ella Murton.
