p.5 Thousand Island Park Notes - steamers are on their routes - The steamer St. Lawrence, in command of Capt. Milo B. Estes, will meet the club trains as usual...The steamer Nightingale is now making 6 trips daily between Clayton and Fine View....The steamer Capt. Visgar is now making her daily ramble among the islands. This year she will be assisted by the steamer Castanet. The steamer Arundell is now making tri-weekly trips between Rochester and Alexandria Bay, calling at all ports between.

p.6 Will Lead To Litigation - The Thousand Island steamboat company, Howard S. Folger general manager, has secured an injunction, restraining the Visger's boats from landing at the docks known as Fine View dock, at Fine View, and the Crossman and Cornwall docks at Alexandria Bay. It is believed the Visgers will test the right of the steamboat company to shut their boats out from the docks leased, and bring the case before the court as soon as practicable. In this case long and expensive litigation will probably result. [Syracuse Post-Standard]
