Mr. Lee, of the North American Wrecking company, the firm which is endeavoring to raise the S.S. Bavarian, denies that she is broken in two and that she is likely to be abandoned. He further states that she is being cut in two, and good progress is being made. When this is accomplished she will be drawn up on the beach, after which she will be placed in the dry dock, where a survey will be made. If it is found feasible to make temporary repairs, to warrant her being taken to New York for permanent refitting, the same will be made.

p.8 Pith of the News - A new steamer, destined for the lake-carrying trade, has arrived in Montreal from Dundee. She is the G.R. Cole, and was built for Great Britain for the St. Lawrence and Chicago Navigation company, for the grain-carrying trade.
