Full Text

p.2 Incidents of the Day - Capt. James Norris and Engineer William McCabe left for Cobourg, on Thursday, to go on board the steamer City of New York. The latter vessel will go out to the steamer Sharples.

p.5 Boiler Arrived - The huge boiler for the quarantine boat which is being built by the Kingston Shipbuilding company, has arrived, and, today, was removed from the railway yards to the ship yard. The boiler was so large that it could not be loaded on a truck, so it had to be rolled along the road. It presented a very unusual spectacle, indeed, and horses trembled when going past. It took all day to move it about three blocks.

March 25, 1911

p.2 Navigation Very Late - boats will be delayed by weather conditions.

Ice Boats in Harbor - late for this sport.
