Certificate Not Issued.

Kingston, May 19th - (To the Editor):

Regarding the letter of "Mariner" in Saturday's paper, regarding the steamer Glengarry, I asked Hull Inspector Davis if he had refused a certificate to that steamer. He said that while not caring to discuss the matter, he felt that a correction should be made of "Mariner's" letter, and made this statement: "I did refuse to issue a certificate to the steamer Glengarry, a request for one having being made. This I did from the fact that the boat's condition last year would not warrant it remaining in service another year without extensive repairs." ANOTHER MARINER
