The Maritime History of the Great Lakes
British Whig (Kingston, ON), June 3, 1879

Full Text



The schooner Hamilton, damaged in a tow at Detroit, will repair at Kingston.

The schooner Thomas C. Street, of St. Catharines, fell short on a cargo of corn loaded May 23rd, at the Northern elevator, Toronto, and shipped to the Montreal Transportation Company at Kingston. The company here claimed that she was 305 bushels short. The mate, who tallied, thinks a mistake was made by an inexperienced and new weighman at Toronto, where they loaded. Now there is a lively dispute over the deficit, as the freight cannot be settled without the shortage being 'squared up.'
