Oliver Mowat (Schooner), 1 Apr 1892

The OLIVER MOWAT Launched
The schooner OLIVER MOWAT, Captain J.H. Peacock, which had been on the stocks for rebuilding during the past winter at Port Hope was successfully launched Thursday. A large number of ladies and gentlemen were present. Mr. William Hickey, the ship builder removed the stays and as the town clock struck three, OLIVER MOWAT began to move and was soon like a duck sitting in her native element. All present congratulated Mr. Hickey on the success of the launch. The only thing to find fault with being the delapidated flag bearing the name of the vessel "Oliver Mowat" at the mast-head. Surely the owners or the Attorney General of Ontario might have forwarded a new flag for such an interesting occasion. Mr.John McClellan of Bowmanville one of the owners was present.
