Messrs. Poupore & Fraser are suing the crown for $117,000 for extra work and loss of profits in their contract for widening the Rapide Plat division of the St. Lawrence canals, occasioned by the change in the works by the government engineer.

The Donnelly wrecking company with lighter timber, chains, etc. has left to raise the steamer Richelieu. The steamer will have chains placed about her and lifted by hydraulic jacks. The vessel is sunk about 3/4 of a mile off Welbourne Point, six miles from the city.

Incidents of the Day - C.F. Gildersleeve is doing Kingston honor as well as recalling an historic fact, by using the steamer Kingston for the royal pair's tour through the islands. King Edward in 1860 tripped on the steamer Kingston, but not such a swell craft as that to be now used.

p.6 Could Not Get Away Today - The Donnelly wrecking and salvage company were busily engaged today in preparing material to begin work to raise the steamer Richelieu. New timbers were procured, and at daylight tomorrow the steamer Donnelly and consort Grantham will proceed to the wreck.
