p.2 County Court & Quarter Sessions - Knapp vs Dugmore - for repairs done to yacht.
-Mr. John Carruthers has purchased the Marine Railway property for the sum of $50,000 cash. The purchase includes the Shipyard, cottages on Ontario Street, Holcomb & Cowan's wharf, and Ontario Foundry lots. The purchase is exceedingly cheap, the present rental of the property bringing in about 10% of the purchase money, and the prospective value of such wharf property being exceedingly favorable. The site is a splendid one, and when improved as it doubtless will be by the erection of elevators and grain warehouses, etc., the return will no doubt be something handsome. [News]
*In addition to the above purchase, Mr. Carruthers has bought the valuable property, adjoining the former purchase. This is known by the name of the Cartwright Property, late McPherson & Crane's Wharf, now Kinghorn's wharf. $26,000 is the sum paid for this purchase.
