A serious accident was narrowly averted on the Bay of Quinte near Belleville on Saturday night, when the yacht Zephyr collided with the steamer Aletha. Had the yacht been a few seconds quicker it would have been cut in two and the occupants would no doubt have filled a watery grave. One of the yacht's party was thrown into the water by the force of the collision.

p.3 An Old Captain Dead - Capt. L.M. Collier, owner of str. Reindeer.

p.4 Pith Of The News - At Owen Sound Capt. George McDougall and crew of the C.P.R. steamer Athabaska, were presented with tokens from the dominion government as a recognition of their heroism in rescuing the crew of the United States barge Preston.

p.5 Goderich Notes - Three steamers ply between the Sault and Toledo, belonging to the Algoma line, the King Edward, Ossifage and Pittsburg. The City of the Straits runs between the Sault and Sandusky. All touch both ways at Goderich. The gale was so severe on Wednesday night that the Ossifage sprung a leak, and by sheer good luck got safely into harbor. Marlton remedied the damage, and the Ossifage left the next evening. Most of the passengers remained over.
