p.1 The steamer Arabian arrives at Richardsons' elevator from Fort William tomorrow morning.

p.3 Sinking of a Steamyacht - Mallorytown, Dec. 9th - News has just reached here of the sinking of the steamyacht Jennie D., belonging to Norris Andress, Poole's Resort. It appears that he was in the act of moving her through the ice into the channel, when a large floe of ice jammed into her sides causing her to sink in about fifty feet of water.

p.4 Lost On Lakes - Detroit, Dec. 11th - The total number of lives lost on the great lakes during the season of 1901 was 132, as compared with 110 last year, 100 in 1899, 95 in 1898, 68 in 1897, and 66 in 1896. Despite the improvement of the lake shipping and the life saving service the number of lives lost this season is just twice as large as that in 1896; and the only explanation given is the fact that the number of vessels on the great lakes has doubled in the last six years.
