p.5 Incidents of the Day - The steamer Pierrepont returned early this morning from Bath. On the way up much ice was met, but returning, the wind had shifted and the ice was blown away.
The sloop Monitor, which made a record trip on New Year's morning to Stella with grain, is surrounded by ice at Collins Bay. The steamer Pierrepont may go to the rescue. The Monitor returned after unloading.

p.1 A Disastrous Year - Windsor, Jan. 5th - The fall of 1900 will go into history as the most disastrous for fishermen on the great lakes for many years, the catch being less than one-half of that of last year. The catch of herring in Green Bay, which is the heaviest on the great lakes is barely 43,000 half barrels, on Saginaw Bay 10,000 and Lake Erie 2,000. A year ago stocks at these points were 125,000 half barrels.
p.2 Pierrepont's Late Running - Last year the steamer Pierrepont continued running to the islands until Jan. 23rd, when the harbor became so frozen over that further crossing was impossible. In 1881, the Pierrepont ran during every month that year. Only for three weeks in February was the harbor frozen thickly over, and then the gunboat had to lay up. She ran from the beginning of March, however.
p.8 Ice In The Harbor - steamer Pierrepont went to Cape Vincent in place of New Island Wanderer; now an inch of ice over all the harbor.
