p.1 He Did Not Resign - Montreal, Feb. 15th - Julian Chabot, the ex-general manager of the Richelieu & Ontario Navigation Co., who was said to have resigned from the company, states that he did not resign but was dismissed at five minutes notice. The directors say that he was notified before the end of last year that his services would not be required after the end of the year.

p.4 Incidents of the Day - R. Davis has been instructed by Inspector Chamberlain to sell the str. Merritt. If the boat is not sold the doctor will put her on the river again next year.


[Montreal Star]

A meeting of the directors of the Richelieu & Ontario navigation company was held this forenoon. As a result of the meeting it is understood that Julien Chabot, general manager of the company, will sever his connection with it at the end of the present week. Nothing definite has yet been arranged as to the appointment of a successor to Mr. Chabot, but as there are a number of applicants the place will soon be filled. It was finally decided to place the steamer Columbian to run in connection with the Niagara Falls electric railroad between Chippewa, Ont., and Buffalo, N.Y. As this road carried 120,000 passengers during four months of last year the company look for good results from the change. The Magnet as usual will run between Hamilton, Toronto and Montreal via the Bay of Quinte, both ways.
