Wolfe Island Ferry
Wolfe Island, Nov. 16th - To The Editor - As a number of letters have appeared in your paper for and against the ownership by Wolfe Islanders of a ferry boat, I may say I do not think the scheme will amount to anything, as no contract has been entered into. The letters written seem to make the council tired of the whole business and inclined to drop it. The reeve finds that the council cannot go on with the matter, having the ratepayers against them. So one who knows admits that the old reliable Pierrepont will still accommodate the Island people.
ONE WHO KNOWS.
