p.1 Lift Lock Completed - at Peterborough on Trent Valley canal.

New Industry For Prescott - The Morrisburg government gas buoy works are being brought to Prescott and enlarged. The company bought the property of the old Prescott brewery and will erect new buildings and a breakwater and dry dock. Twenty-five thousand dollars will be expended at once. When in running order the industry will employ sixty to seventy-five hands.

p.6 Improving Anglin's Bay - The hull of the derelict str. Maggie L., which has reposed for years on the bottom of the bay at the foot of Wellington St., will be entirely removed by tonight. The harbor-master ordered its removal in order that the government dredge, now in the bay, might proceed uninterruptedly in its work. A 12 foot channel will be excavated into Anglin's slip, so that the largest coal carrying vessels may reach the wharf in safety. The Rathbun company and the K. & P. railway company, whom this new channel will also benefit, intend making extensive improvements to their wharves in the bay during the approaching winter.

Incidents of the Day - The marine engineers met last evening and discussed a very important matter regarding wages. It is proposed to classify steamboats so that the wages of engineers will be equalized.

Canal Needed - To Open Up Rich Mineral Lands - proposed from Bedford Mills to Desert Lake, passing through Birch, Mud and Devil Lakes.
