p.2 Repairs To Boats - The mild weather of this month has given marine men the opportunity of making necessary alterations on their vessels, and they have taken advantage of it. Capt. Simmons, of the schooner Acacia, and Capt. Patterson, of the schooner Mary Ann Lydon, have been busy, and others are now waiting for good strong ice, so that they can get at other work on the vessels. The government tug Trudeau will undergo alterations.

Ready For Ice Yachting - waiting on ice; some new boats this year.

p.1 Elevator To Run - On Monday the elevator at Richardsons's will be running again, and some 30,000 bushels of wheat will be taken out of the steamer Ames, which was one of the last steamers to arrive. Owing to the elevator being crowded, the grain was left in the vessel. The middle of January is rather late for work in a grain elevator.
