p.2 Insurance Adjuster Here - Capt. Beaupre, vice-president of the Albany and Troy Steamboat company, who was a former resident of Portsmouth, and Alexander McKenzie, N.Y., both representing United States marine insurance underwriters, were in the city today en route to Trenton to adjust the loss, by fire, of the steambarge Alberta, destroyed there about two weeks ago.



Large Coal Vessel Had To Run Into Waupoose.

Tuesday afternoon, the large schooner Muskoka arrived here in tow of the tug Thomson, having hard coal for Swift & Co. Her companion ship, the Neelon, sailed across the lake, but began to leak, and had to run into Waupoose. The tug Frontenac was sent after her, and arrived down with the schooner today. The leakage was above the water mark. The Neelon, as well as the Muskoka, is owned by the Collins Bay Wrecking company, and was only recently thoroughly repaired in the dry-dock. She carried about 900 tons of coal.
