p.2 Plea of a Mariner - wants his friends to visit him at Snug Harbor, where he is currently ill.

p.3 Wolfe Island, March 8th - .....The pros and cons are being discussed as to the advisability of the council engaging an engineer for the Wolfe Islander, at $800 per annum as the reeve states he had one practically engaged at $600. D. Simmons, Garden Island, was the one engaged. Many ratepayers feel that municipal ownership is not to be desired. The ratepayers all think that the citizens of Kingston should at least provide for islanders a free wharf, as they must all admit that the island is of great benefit to the city. Reeve Spoor will interview the city council on the above question.
