Description
Full Text

p.2 Honor The Occasion - new steamer Kingston will make first trip to Kingston in June; should not city council present a set of flags to steamer?; 2 years ago the new str. Toronto got a set of flags from Toronto council.

p.4 Won Cup Absolutely - Walker Cup won by Kingston ice yachts (much detail).

p.5 The Canadian Route - Capt. Hinckley, in reply to Capt. Davis, repeats that the channel he marked out in the Whig the other day below Wolfe Island is both deep and safe. He can take a boat through drawing twenty feet, and so could any navigator who studied the river chart. The channel is nearly direct, but a few gas buoys would make the route absolutely safe, and at little expense. The light Capt. Davis says would be necessary on Hickory island would be altogether out of the way. Range lights on Grindstone island would be serviceable, however. Any one interested may study the chart of the locality at the Whig office.

p.6 Captain R. Charles, Marysville, formerly of the steambarge Alberta, left today with his family for Muskegon, Mich.

Opening of Canals - probable dates Welland canal on 22nd April; Lachine, Cornwall and Williamsburg, 1st May.
