p.2 Toronto, Dec. 7th - Vessel owners are now being offered better freights for next season than they received this year. Several large shippers are willing to charter vessels for the whole season at greatly advanced rates, but owners hold out expecting better terms before spring.

A concert for the benefit of the widow and children of the late Capt. Nixon, who lost his life some time ago on Lake Ontario by the sinking of the schooner Maggie Hunter, will be given shortly in St. Andrew's Hall.

p.3 A Gale - There is a heavy gale blowing down the lake today, and white caps are plentiful in the harbour. It has had the effect of breaking up any ice which might have formed.
