p.2 Yawl Boat Floated Away - The yawl boat of the schooner Suffel, lying near Richardsons', was left out on the ice, and yesterday, it floated over to the R.M.C. point. Some men who were working on the boat secured another yawl boat and towed the missing one in.

Incidents of the Day - The steamer Pierrepont left at nine o'clock this morning for Cape Vincent. The steamer did not make a trip yesterday, owing to the severe gale.

There were close upon a dozen sea captains at the scene of the fire at the docks Thursday. It looked something like the good old summer time to see them gathered together.

No Lecture This Evening - Capt. Thomas Donnelly, having been called west under order of the Dominion government to conduct an enquiry concerning the wreck of the steamer Monarch, of Collingwood, will be unable to lecture at the marine school this evening.

The Fire At Docks - There was much talk in marine circles today about the narrow escape the boats had in the blaze at the docks yesterday. It was the opinion that had the fire occurred at night it would certainly have resulted in a more serious loss.

p.5 Toronto, Jan. 11th - Judge Hodgson, sitting at the admiralty court, at Sarnia, has given his award in the case of the steamer City of New York, which was libelled at Toronto on October 1st last at the instance of the cook, Mrs. Kay, who had a claim for wages.
