p.2 A Steam Yacht Seized - The steamyacht Albina, owned by Dr. Wagner, of Detroit, who was formerly interested in the Frontenac Cereal company, Kingston, arrived from Detroit a couple of days ago, and anchored in the harbor. Very soon afterwards she was placed under seizure by the sheriff, at the instance of several local business firms, to whom the owner was indebted when he left here, nearly two years ago. The Albina is 100 feet in length, and was formerly owned by W.H. Comstock, at Brockville. She was originally valued at $30,000 and is now worth $10,000 or $12,000. It is understood that a settlement will be made. The Kingston Foundry company is one of the creditors.
