To Repair the Craft.

The interested insurance underwriters holding risks on the steamer Rosedale have paid all claims against the boat and have asked the Kingston foundry company and locomotive works company to submit tenders for making complete repairs. The insurance companies will put the boat in first class condition and hand her over to the owners.

The Donnelly Salvage & Wrecking company yesterday received a cheque for the amount of the company's claim against the steamer Rosedale in connection with the recent wrecking operations. The cheque was for $18,535, and included expenses incurred upon both attempts to release the steamer.

Incidents of the Day - Donnelly Bros., wreckers, have ordered two new fifteen inch rotary steam pumps from England. They are now building and upon arrival will make nine pumps the firm will then possess. They will be the largest in the dominion.
