p.1 Fears Trouble - Detroit, March 24th - The measure now being considered at Ottawa, requiring all captains and mates on Canadian vessels, to be British subjects, if passed, and a similar law on this side of the line, if provoked, will result disastrously for many Canadian masters and mates as the ratio of Canadians employed on United States vessels to Americans employed on Canadian boats is ten to one.

p.2 missing

p.8 Wolfe Island News, March 24th - The steamer Wolfe Islander is now in readiness, awaiting the opening of navigation. It was thought some time ago that navigation would open early and her manager placed her crew aboard to have her in readiness, but it is thought now that she will not be out as early as last year, for on the 10th of April, 1905 she made her first trip.
