Capt. Donnelly was a visitor in Toronto last week, and while there told a reporter he had never been so busy before, having raised more wrecks in the last two months than was sometimes done in 2 years. Wrecks have been unusually numerous during the past two seasons, and the company is well equipped to look after all this work.

Personal Mention - Martin Clayton arrived home from Farran's Point on Saturday, after completing the tug Walker for the Canadian Construction company, of Montreal.

p.3 Verona Leads The Other Yachts Over The Course - the first regular club pennant race - description.

p.6 Must Remove Obstructions - Harbor Master McCammon today notified Capt. Hurley, Sault Ste. Marie, and Capt. Roys, of the steamer Aletha, this city, to remove from Anglin's Bay sunken vessels which are an impediment to navigation. Capt. Hurley owns a tug that lies in the bottom of the bay, and Capt. Roys owns the steamer Belle Ritchie, derelict. These boats, as they now lie, prevent deep-draught vessels from getting in to Anglin's wharf and the K. & P. coal wharf. Their owners are requested to remove the obstructions as soon as possible.
