The steamer Robinault was not built by Davis & Sons, of this city. She was brought to Kingston simply to have her machinery placed in position. She was built at Valleyfield.

It seems that the buoys on the Bolivia and the Myles shoals have been knocked off their foundations several times this season - the former having been replaced four times and the latter twice. The depth of water over the Bolivia shoal is twelve feet.

It is understood that chief Adams, of Brockville, intends taking proceedings against the captain of the steamer Aletha for running excursions out of Brockville on Sundays in violation of the Sabbath observance act. He secured the names of those who got on board for the purpose of summoning them as witnesses. The captain claims he is making regular river trips like the steamer Empire State and will fight the case.

p.5 He Would Not Convict - Toronto - as long as excursions are not advertised for special rates, will not convict under Sabbath observance act, against steamers Argyle, Lakeside and Garden City.
