p.1 Appoint A Manager - James Swift leaves for Montreal today to attend a meeting of the directors of the R. & O. navigation company. At this meeting the new manager will be appointed. The feeling in favor of a Kingston man seems to grow stronger and if C.F. Gildersleeve is not appointed it will be rather surprising.

p.2 Repairs Started - Capt. Towers, manager of the R. & O. N. Co. for this district was in the city yesterday and arranged for repairs to be done to the stern of the str. Columbian injured by a collision with the prop. St. Magnus last year. The repairs will not cost much. The captain does not think there will much other work done here now. The Magnet is pretty well off. The str. Columbian will be put on the route between Chippewa and Buffalo. It is expected there will be money in this route.
