p.1 Took Report With Him - Edward Adams, chairman of the board of steamboat inspectors, who has conducted the Scout investigation, left this afternoon for Ottawa, taking with him his report which he will hand to the minister of marine on Monday.

The Sailor's Snug Harbor, corner King and Barrack street, is now open to sailors and dockmen from 10 a.m. till 10 p.m. Everything has been done to make the rooms bright and cheerful, as well as attractive, in order that the disengaged hours may be improved. Vessels may be supplied with a "Loan Library" by applying to the missionary.



Richardson's elevator: schooners Marshall from Cobourg with barley; Laura D. and Ariadne from bay ports with grain.

Capt. J. Stockwell, of Leamington, Ont., bought the steambarge Coaster from Captain Joseph Saunders, of Cape Vincent. Capt. Stockwell will rent the Coaster, and take the boat to Leamington, where he will use her as a general freight boat.

The steambarge Navajo, disabled on the lake by a blown out cylinder head, was towed down by the tug Frontenac, and reached here about five o'clock yesterday afternoon. She has a cargo of grain for Richardsons' elevator. The Navajo had sails, and could have come down herself had there been a breeze.

p.5 The Day's Episodes - The steamer Turbinia left the government dry dock at eight o'clock last evening and cleared for Toronto. Steward Walter Whinton went up on the steamer to commence his duties, all parts, as much as possible. There would be some difficulty in doing this as Macdonald Park is the only one equipped with a good bandstand, and the bandsmen claim they cannot play an open air concert without a stand.

p.6 First Steamer To Arrive - Port Arthur, Ont., April 29th - The first passenger boat to arrive at the head of the lake this season reached port yesterday. It was the Huronic, of the Northern Navigation company. The boat was welcomed at her dock by several hundred citizens. Three vessels laden with grain left port yesterday, namely the Turret Court, the Strathcona and the Tadousac.

p.10 A Schooner Arrived - Collins Bay, April 26th - The schooner Queen of the Lakes arrived here, on Wednesday, with 500 tons of coal for A. Rankin.
