p.2 Toronto, March 4th - The ice in the bay is almost gone, and navigation will soon be open if the weather continues mild. Already some movement is being made by vessels in the harbour to furbish up and refit for the spring business.

The strike on the Welland Canal continues, with the exception of at Port Robinson, where the men receive $1.25 per day. The strikers demanded $1.25. There is no violence reported.

p.3 Unloading - The schooner White Oak is being unloaded today of 260 tons of coal at Swift's dock the ice having been cut for the purpose of allowing her to rise up. She will probably load ice for western ports.
