p.3 Lachine Accident - The Montreal Transportation Co. owned, in the Lachine basin when the Bohemian accident occurred, the barges Montreal, Detroit, Dalhousie, Energy and Lalonde, the last chartered. The Detroit, Dalhousiea and Lalonde had their cargoes damaged, the 1st to the extent of about 14000, the second 10,000 bushels and the Lalonde, loaded with white corn, to the extent of about 3000 bushels. The Detroit is a wreck, being broken in two and badly shattered, while the damage to the others is not quite so great as was reported. The St. Lawrence and Chicago Forwarding Co. had 8 barges in the basin, the Onondaga, Arthur, Lion, Iroquios, Canada, Nebraska, James, and Arab. They have not found any of the cargoes damaged, and their loss will be in time and expense of shifting cargoes. The Kingston and Montreal Forwarding Co.'s barges, Iroquois and Hawk, settled on a level bottom and are safe. The Kathleen was relaunched this afternoon and settled well into the water. The Bohemian's cargo was taken out of her piecemeal. She was uninsured, and so was her cargo....The direct damage caused by the Lachine Canal accident is set down at about $500,000, while the indirect damage can hardly be estimated, but will likely exceed $1,000,000.
Wind Wafts - Twelve vessels arrived during Wednesday night and Thursday. They carried about 225,000 bushels of grain. The delay in getting them unloaded was not great, as several of the companies succeeded in getting barges from Montreal.
The Chicago Inter-Ocean is greatly exercised over the fact that Canadian vessels are bought up by Yanks and turned into barges.
The prop Africa of Kingston struck the tug Wadsworth in the Welland Canal and sunk her. Damages $50.
