p.2 Help Him Along - Capt. Patenaude, of the steamer Arabian, in port, says he passed the sunken Fabiola. She had all sails set and was lying in about fifty feet of water east south-east of the Main Ducks. He would have taken proper bearings had there not been a slight fog. Capt. Dan Bates, owner of Fabiola, is left practically peniless, and is entitled to public sympathy.


Entitled To Sympathy.

Kingston, Oct. 29th - To the Editor;

Capt. Dan Bates worked for Breck & Booth about ten years ago. A circular saw burst and struck him on the right arm. The result was that he partially lost the use of the hand. The loss of his schooner the Fabiola and no insurance on her, entitles him to the sympathy of the people of his adopted city. SAILOR

John Foster, aged forty-five, who has been connected with the Detroit Belle Isle and Windsor ferry company for twenty years, dropped dead of heart failure last night. Capt. Foster was the son of Capt. James Foster and is survived by a widow and four children.
