* Lighthouse Keeper Reynolds of Sandy Point had a rough time of it during the freeze. For 16 days he was alone at the lighthouse while the ice piled up 16 feet high. Due to his rheumatism and lack of medicine, he had to regulate the lights by crawling on his hands and knees to the fourth story tower. -- The Sun, March 4, 1895.

* The Annapolis City Council has recommended to the Naval Academy authorities the use of vitrified brick in paving King George Street and rubble-stone for Wagner and Hanover streets, adjacent to the Naval Academy. -- The Sun, March 11, 1895.

* The 26 saloon-keepers in Annapolis are seeking signers to their liquor-license applications. Each application must be signed by 10 respectable taxpayers in the neighborhood of the saloon. -- The Sun, March 22, 1895.
