p.2 Incidents of the Day - The Thousand Island steamboat company have decided to run the steamer New York on the Kingston, Clayton and Ogdensburg routes during the coming summer.

Rideau Route Booming - Capt. Noonan today left for Detroit to secure a large party of tourists who desire a week's cruise on the Rideau in June. It was through the New York Central railway folder of the Rideau lakes trip that the captain heard from this party. Capt. Noonan deserves credit for his efforts in bringing this beautiful waterway to the notice of the New York Central railway company who have advertised it all over the United States. Anything that will bring tourists to the Rideau will help Kingston, and it would be well for the city council to make a grant for advertising purposes in the Rideau Lakes pamphlet.

p.6 The Sale of a Dredge - The dominion government has decided to sell the dredge Queen, which wintered at this port. E.B. Godwin, of the public works department, Ottawa, is in the city in connection with the sale of the dredge.
