p.1 Ready To Do The Work - Sarnia, Dec. 3rd - William Reid, of the Reid Wrecking company, will put in a bid for removing the wreck of the steamer Gliddon from St. Clair flats canal before the season closes. The Reid company has decided to enter the race for business on the lower Detroit river and will send two tugs there at once. There is a large field of heavy ice near Colchester and a few cold nights will make it hard for boats to go through.

p.2 Capt. Malone's Statement - Capt. Anthony Malone told the Toronto Star: "I know the spot where the schooner Emerald is thought to have gone down. I was at Brighton four years ago, and was forced to anchor in the harbor. While waiting for the storm to subside I saw a terrific sea. The spray from the incoming tide went up fully a hundred feet, and no vessel could have survived a collision with the coast at that point. The place I describe is where the Emerald met her fate."

p.8 Only 1300 Bushels Damaged - The work of unloading the steamer Erin and consort Danforth is still proceeding at Richardsons' elevator. It has been found that of the cargo of 83,000 bushels only 1,300 bushels were damaged, 1,200 of which were in the Danforth. The damaged grain will be bought by the Richardsons and dried.

To Purchase Speedy Steamer - H.S. Folger, general manager of the Thousand Island Steamboat company, gone to New York hoping to buy a speedy steamer for the river.
