p.5 Richelieu Company Wins - The famous case of the R. & O. N. Co. against the insurance companies has been settled. It will be remembered that the Richelieu company claimed $40,000 in connection with the burning of the steamer Corinthian. This claim was disputed by the insurance companies interested and was carried through all the different courts. In each case judgement was secured by the Richelieu company, and finally about a week ago notice of appeal to the privy council was given by the insurance companies. Today it is learned that they have decided to forego this appeal, and to pay the amount claimed, $40,000, to the Richelieu company, together with all costs incurred.

Incidents of the Day - Capt. James Dix will sail the schr. S.H. Dunn again next season.
