p.1 Marine School - Abraham Shaw, inspector of customs, will, on Monday evening next, deliver an address at the marine lectures on the shipmaster's duties in entering and clearing ship at customs.

p.2 Have Lost Interest - There is little or no talk about ice boating at the Cape this winter. For several seasons up to last year this village had a large fleet of boats, some of which were exceedingly speedy. The failure to win the Walker cup from the Kingston club in 1903 and 1904 seems to have had a disheartening effect upon the members of the Cape club.

p.5 Vessel Reached Port - Port Stanley, Ont., Jan. 6th - Much anxiety was felt for the Pere Marquette car ferry, Marquette, which left Conneaut, Ohio, on Wednesday evening and which should have arrived here on Thursday morning. The vessel arrived last evening. Stormy weather on the south shore of the lake delayed her.

Incidents of the Day - The second lecture to the Marine school was given last evening by Captain Thomas Donnelly. There was a large attendance of mariners and others interested.



The room was filled to the door at the marine lecture last evening. Captain Donnelly spoke for two hours on the building and registration of ships, taking up the subject from the time the keel was laid until the ship was finished and registered. The lecturer explained all about Lloyd rules for the building and classification of ships, gave a short history on the formation and work of the different registration societies, and explained the provisions of the "Registration of Ships' Act," as applied to Canadian vessels. He was listened to throughout with the closest attention, and received hearty applause at the close of the lecture. On Monday evening Abraham Shaw will give the sailors, and all interested, a talk on the duties of measuring, surveyor and masters' at customs entering and clearing ships.
