LOOKED OVER STEAMER
Reeve Fawcett and Clerk Dawson, of Wolfe Island municipality, visited Toronto on Tuesday to inspect the steamboat in course of construction by the Bertram company for the island council under the bylaw passed by the people. Some changes have to be made in the specifications, including the substitution of the good old kind for bucketing paddles. On the journey up the delegation had the expert advice of Captain Thomas Donnelly, Inspector Davis and Sanford Calvin, and their mind was well matured and copper-fastened, so that a fine product in the way of an up-to-date and able-bodied boat will be the result.
