p.3 Timber Contracts - The owner of a timber vessel has been offered $90 per 1,000 cubic feet for two trips from Toledo to Kingston, or $125 per M. for carrying pine from Lake Superior. The timber owners do not like to make contracts for more than one or two trips as they think vessels will drop in at lower rates. Vessel owners desire to make contracts for the entire season.

Timber Charters - Charters have already been made to carry fourteen cargoes of oak timber from Canadian ports on Lake Erie to Kingston at $87.50 per 1,000 cubic feet, and one charter at $90 per 1,000. Charters have been made to carry oak timber from Bay City to Kingston at $120 per 1,000, and it is reported that another charter has been made at $135.
