W.F. Latzke started construction of his new mill at the north side of the railroad tracks. The main building was to be 24x36, three stories high.
The search for the bodies of the ferryboat passengers who drowned in the river continued without success.
A benefit ball was given in the new hall of the Hallinan building for the widow of the children of William Zellmann, one of the victims of the ferryboat upset.
Oranges and lemons were 20 cents a dozen, cranberries 7 cents a quart and oatmeal 3 1/2 cents a pound.
A windstorm blew out a building front, knocked over chimneys and shade trees. The draw span on the river bridge, though locked at both ends, was broken from its fastenings until it stood lengthwise with the stream.
