p.2 Measuring Vessels - Captain W.M. Somerville, of Ottawa, was engaged from Sunday until last evening in measuring and surveying vessels under the new Merchant's Shipping Act. By this new measurement the Royal Mail Line and all upper cabin boats are registered as having much larger tonnage than before. They pay now for all the room they have, while boats which have not upper cabins pay less than formerly. Capt. Somerville found everything satisfactory here, and he acknowledges the valuable assistance he received from Mr. Macalister, of the Customs Department. He left here last evening for the West, and will visit Hamilton, St. Catherines, Goderich, Sarnia and other lake ports. He will return by way of Lake Simcoe. Capt. Somerville is the Grand Superintendent, for this district, of the Royal Arch Masons.
