p.2 To Open Tomorrow - The investigation into the schooner Marine City disaster will open in the city hall tomorrow morning at ten o'clock. The proceedings will be public. The use of the city council chamber was desired, but as it will be used as one of the booths for registration, the city hall had to be taken. It is thought that after formally opening proceedings an adjournment for a few days will be agreed to.

p.5 News of the District - A gang of fifty men are making the annual repairs on the Rutland line boats at Ogdensburg. About $20,000 will be expended. The steamers Haskell, Frost, Governor Smith, Prince and James, in the fleet, are wintering at Ogdensburg. Repairs will also be made to the boilers of the Whittaker, Omaha, and Monteagle.
