Decision Not Yet Announced
Commander Spain received the following telegram from the deputy-minister of marine and fisheries today at noon, and in consequence is obliged to leave for Ottawa tomorrow at one o'clock.
"Unless judgement has been disposed of today, Mr. Adams and yourself are required in Ottawa on important departmental business."
In view of commander Spain being recalled to Ottawa there will be some delay in announcing the finding of the court appointed to enquire into the loss of the Marine City, which has been sitting here for the past week. Judgement, however, will be rendered at as early a date as possible, and due notice to that effect will be inserted in the local papers.
