p.1 Is It A Fact - Ottawa, Dec. 21st - Chief Engineer Lafleur, of the Public Works department, has instructed Engineer Sing, of Toronto, to ascertain what truth there is in the report that a battleship, or ships, sunk in the River Thames, Ont. in a naval engagement during the war of 1812, are to be raised and sent to the United States.



The steamer Aletha has gone into winter quarters at Swift's wharf.

The M.T. company tug Glide will winter in the government dry dock with the steamer Caspian.

The M.T company's barge Hamilton, which has been unloading coal at Swift's, went down to the company's slip today to winter.

It is many years since the slips at Craig's have been free of boats, wintering, but when the steamer Caspian left yesterday it left them empty.

p.8 Incidents of the Day - The steamer New Island Wanderer came through the snowfall from Cape Vincent this morning without any trouble, Capt. Allen having very keen eyes. This afternoon she returned to the Cape by the foot of Wolfe Island.
