p.1 The body of John Donnelly, Toronto, late fireman of the steamer Cambria, was found floating in the harbor at Port Dalhousie, Ont., this morning.

At the annual meeting of the Kingston yacht club association held last evening, all the old officers were re-elected by acclamation.

The Reasons For Disaster - Cardinal, June 18th - It likely will require a great effort to float the stern section of the steamer (sic) Minnewaska, lying in shallow water, and there is very little cargo to lighten. The tug Escort also ran aground between the Minnewaska and an island and is as good as wrecked. The blame for the accident can in no way be attached to the St. Lawrence route but lies wholly with the owners of the vessel, who choose bringing the two sections down the river at once, in tow of small tugs, rather than towing her down one section at a time, as was successfully accomplished with her sister ship, the Minnetoka.
