p.5 Watching For The Bodies - The C.M.B.A., No. 9, of this city, communicated with the C.M.B.A. societies of Goderich and vicinity, asking them to be on the lookout for the bodies of the Kingston sailors who lost their lives by the Marine City disaster of November last. A reply has been received stating that a careful watch has been instituted along the lake shore for some miles around Goderich. It is expected that the bodies would have been washed near the shore and frozen in the ice, so that if found by the spring they will be in good condition.

p.2 Want An Investigation - Some weeks ago a protest was sent to the department of marine and fisheries at Ottawa, regarding alleged lack of qualification of a captain to command a vessel sailing on the lakes. No reply was received, so recently another protest was forwarded to the minister. It bore the signatures of a number of marine men of the city, and asked for an investigation. They are now anxiously awaiting a reply.
