p.1 Ice In the Harbor -

p.5 Hay From The Island - steambarge Navajo brought pressed hay from Wolfe Island.

p.6 The Day's Episodes - Capt. Ball, insurance adjustor, is in the city looking after business in conjunction with the wreck of the steamer John Sharples.

Capt. H.N. McMaster, of the steamer Stormount, was in the city yesterday, and left for his home in Toronto.

The steamer City of Ottawa came out of the Kingston dry dock on Friday morning, after having some repairs made on her and the City of Hamilton went in to have repairs.

Dec. 17, 1910



The cold weather has not put a stop to work around the wrecked steamer, John Sharples, that is in the taking off of her cargo. Last night, the steam barge Hinckley started out for the scene to take off corn, and the steambarge Navajo left on Saturday morning.

Marine men are looking for a mild spell in the weather. A few more nights like last night, however, would have made ice hard enough to stop all navigation.
