p.2 Sporting Paragraphs - Revised editions of the constitution and bylaws of the Kingston Ice Yacht Club have been issued.

J.B. Carruthers is having a new ice-yacht built after plans prepared by Buchan ?, the famous New York marine draughtsman, who has prepared drawings for so many fast yachts that sail the frozen Hudson. The skates were made in New York, but the remainder of the work is being done here by the Carnovsky company.

A Meeting Has Been Called.

Last night Capt. McLeod, representing the firm of insurance underwriters holding risks on the steamer Rosedale, and engineer Ellis, who was superintending the work of disconnecting and storing the machinery of the wrecked steamer, left for Toronto, thence Capt. McLeod will proceed to his home at Buffalo. The steamer's machinery has been carefully taken apart, oiled and stored, so as to save it from any damage.

A meeting of the owners and the interested insurance underwriters has been called to convene at Buffalo early next week, when it will be decided what course will be taken in disposing of the Rosedale. It is asserted the owners do not want to take her back, that they want a more modern and differently constructed boat. Furthermore, it is said that even after she has been repaired her value will not exceed $50,000, less than half her original cost.
