Rates of insurance on cargoes were lowered on 3rd class articles 33 1/3 % from 2nd class, the 1st and 2nd class remaining the same as last year. Measures were taken to simplify cargo policies, and make them uniform, and rendering them more valuable to the holder. The former system of inspectors located at different points on the lakes was re-adopted. The following Executive Committee was appointed for the following year: E.P. Dorr, of Buffalo; Wm. Steward, of Toronto; J.A. Helfenstein, of Milwaukie; and D.P. Dobbins, of Buffalo, Secretary.
