p.1 Calls For Enquiry - Alleged Captain Refused To Give Aid - to the crew of the steamer Clarion even while she was in distress - (unreadable)

p.4 The executive of the Dominion Marine Association meeting in Toronto decided to appose certain provisions of the insurance bill.



Ogdensburg, Dec. 15th - Marine men will display their appreciation of the courage of Captain Anderson of the steamer L.C. Hanna in going to the rescue of the six sailors stranded on the burning Clarion. A purse of $1,000 has been subscribed, mainly by vessel interests in Cleveland. More will be added and the total will likely be divided with Captain Detloff of the steamer William A. Payne, who rescued members of the crew of the William C. Richardson at Buffalo. Both captains are to be presented with gold watches, suitably inscribed, as tokens of their bravery and splendid seamanship.
