p.1 To Tow Vessel - Buffalo, Jan. 20th - After sixteen hours battling the waves, the tugs Fabian and Alva B., of Cleveland, reached this harbor at eight o'clock this morning from Cleveland. They were sent here by Charles Hutchison, who owns the steamer Standard, now laid up here, which is to be towed to Cleveland as soon as the weather will permit and loaded with coal for winter storage.

p.2 A MARINE LECTURE - before start of marine lecture by Capt. Donnelly, a eulogy to C.F. Gildersleeve presented; he was always concerned about the safety and seaworthiness of his boats.

Should Be Printed - the marine lectures of Capt. Donnelly should be printed in pamphlet form by marine department, and distributed free to mariners.

p.8 Incidents of the Day - Capt. D. Noonan, president of the Rideau Lakes Navigation company, has returned from his trip to Toronto where he was in attendance at the several rate meetings of the navigation companies.

The steamer New Island Wanderer made her trip from Cape Vincent this morning, and returned this afternoon, via the foot of Wolfe Island. Practically no ice was encountered except at the entrance to Kingston harbor. She will remain until tomorrow morning.

p.13 Wolfe Island News - Jan. 18th - The boat still continues to reach the dock, but she must certainly be running at a loss, as there is very little travel and her expenses remain about the same. At the first regular meeting of the new council the following were re-engaged for the present year: Gregory, $1 per day; Keegan, purser, $40 per month; James Davis, mate, and J. Lelesue, engineer, $66.66 per month. There are four applications for master, Capts. David Cummins, Charles Cummings, Michael O'Shea, Robert Winbourne. On their application the above ask for $50 per month, while the boat is in service. The engaging of a captain was deferred until the first meeting in February.
