p.2 The Line Contract - Public advertisement is given by the Government that the towing service between Lachine and Kingston will be discontinued on 1st of August. We presume this is intended as a punishment of Messrs. Calvin & Breck for not voting the Grit ticket. It will affect prejudicially the interest of the small forwarding firms who have hitherto looked to the Government tugs for their service, but what do they care for that?
