It is pointed out by prominent Kingston marine men that the Canadian regulations are somewhat faulty in making no distinction as to the number of passengers to be carried by lake coasting river or ferry steamers. The same complement is allowed in each case. It is generally admitted that lake coasting in bad weather is just as dangerous, if not more, as crossing the lake, and yet steamers engaged in the former carry about twice as many as the others. The law requires revising.

p.5 Nearly Drowned - two cadets in canoe upset in harbor; picked up by Calvin company tug Frontenac.
