Wrecking Charges To Be Paid.

The Toronto News says a deal between the owners and the underwriters is now on for the final settlement of repairs of the steamer Rosedale. The statement that the Donnelly company would get the boat in payment for their work in raising her was denied by John Haggarty, one of her owners, this morning. He stated that the machinery alone in the Rosedale was worth double the wrecking bill, and that no such step as giving the boat to the Donnellys was ever contemplated.

A Steamer Chartered.

It is understood the Richelieu and Ontario navigation company will have two larger boats running from Toronto to Prescott next season. The new boat now under construction by Bertram & Co. will be ready when the busy season opens. The steamer Corona, of the Niagara navigation company has been chartered for the season, and necessary improvements will be made to fit her for service between these points.

p.4 Races For Walker Trophy - ice-yacht races to be held last week in January.
