p.6 To Blow Up Wreck - Some time ago the department of marine decided to have the wreck of the steamer Rothesay broken up and removed as an obstruction to navigation. The militia department, however, has come to the rescue, and the proposal now is to have the wreck demolished by explosives, under the direction of the officers of the Royal Military College, the object being to afford a practical demonstration to the cadets.
