p.2 Thieves On A Boat - Spartan broken in to at Toronto.

Incidents of the Day - Capt. Mahoney will likely go down the river this week and begin operations for getting his little schooner Pilot off the shore where it was blown during a storm in the fall. The vessel had to be left till the river froze, when it could be released.

p.8 Cylinder Crashed Into Dock - One of the cylinders of the steamer Chicora fell into the government dry dock this morning and was badly smashed. That big steamer's two cylinders were being taken out to be sent to Toronto for boring. One of them was being taken from the deck of the vessel across a temporary railway to the side of the dock. In some way it managed to slip, and down it crashed to the bottom of the dock. The fall ruined the cylinder, which will cost $2,500 to replace. The work was under the supervision of the Niagara Steamboat company's foremen.

Matter Fixed - Toronto, Jan. 7th - The difficulty over the steambarge Clinton, which was tied up at Trenton, for repairs, for some time, was settled today. Capt. Hicks, who had a claim of $3,000, paid the men's claims amounting to $500 and took over the barge from the owners.
