p.2 Died - Capt. Gordon W. Finkle, aged 60.

p.3 In Memoriam - Capt. Finkle - an experienced mariner.

Wrecked - The Inter-Ocean gives place in its columns to this waft of impertinence: "In return for the privilege to American tugs to rescue wrecked American vessels and crew on Canadian beaches, bars, or reefs - when the Canadians have no wrecking tugs themselves - our neighbours propose that the tonnage dues on Canadian bottoms be abolished, and that Canadians may be allowed to serve on our steamers as captains, mates and engineers, without swearing allegiance to the United States. How very generous our Canadian cousins are, eh? If Canadian tugs cannot render assistance to distressed American vessels in time, American tugs will succor them if they have to do so by force!
