p.5 Incidents of the Day - Thirty men are at work on the S.S. Fairmount, in the government drydock, the Kingston foundry having the contract of repairing a number of that big vessel's steel plates, which were injured, last fall, when she grounded.

To Remove The Shoal - W.J. Fuller, a government engineer, is in the city today and is taking soundings of the shoal between Craig's and Swift's wharfs. It was decided some time ago that the soundings should be made, and that a report be submitted to the government, steps having been taken to have the shoal removed.

Mr. Fuller came to the city a few weeks ago to look after the work, but the weather was not favorable to carry it out, and thus his return.


There was a good attendance at the mid-week meeting of the Masters and Mates Association held last night in their rooms on Princess street. Several matters of interest to the members came up for discussion, but the most part of the evening was taken up in considering the Masters and Mates bill, which is now before the house of commons.

The association has comfortable rooms, and the meetings held so far this winter have proved most beneficial to all concerned. It is the intention of the members to hold another of their popular "smokers" on Saturday night.
