Full Text

p.2 Are Keeping At It - The relatives of the deceased seamen are very anxious to know what will be the finding of the commission which recently investigated the Marine City disaster, and are wondering why that finding is not announced. The department of marine and fisheries has been virtually bombarded with correspondence touching the matter. Scarcely a day passes when a letter is not sent to the minister. The C.M.B.A., which is also taking an active interest in the matter, has also been in correspondence with the department with a view to having the decision announced as speedily as possible. If persistence will avail, they will surely accomplish something.

p.5 What May Be Done - It is stated on reliable authority that the commissioners in the Marine City investigation will assemble at Kingston and present their report to the public after the report has been perused and approved of by the minister of marine. The law governing the matter provides that this be done. The minister has not yet received the report, but when he does, no time will be lost in making known the judgement.

p.6 Incidents of the Day - The car ferry International, plying between Prescott and Ogdensburg yesterday, broke one of her shafts and dropped one of her wheels in the St. Lawrence near Ogdensburg. The Donnelly wrecking and salvage company will replace the wheel.
