p.1 An Enquiry Opened - into wreck of Turret Cape.

p.2 TO RAISE BARGE PARSONS

The steamer Phelps was in port, and left for Alexandria Bay, and will endeavor to raise the barge Parsons, which was sunk there a year ago this fall. The Parsons, it will be remembered, was coal-laden. The Phelps secured pumps and other necessary equipment at Kingston.

Quite a heavy fog settled over the water, Thursday night, and the few boats which were moving kept their fog horns blowing continually. The fog horn at Nine Mile Point was working overtime today.

Captain Charles Coons, of the steamer India, which has gone into winter quarters at Garden Island, left today, for his home in St. Catherines.

The government steamer Scout, is busy taking the gas buoys ashore for the season. It was at Swift's wharf for a short time, Friday morning.
