p.3 Marine Notes - The schr. Annie Falconer, from Toronto for Kingston, with wheat at 1 1/2 cents, has arrived. Capt. Taylor says it is better to "rub out than rust out."

The prop. California has been engaged to make the tour of the lakes with Canadian lighthouse supplies. She will touch at Kingston about the 4th July and take on passengers for the cruise.

The rate accepted by the Erin's tow on corn from Chicago to Montreal is 7 cents per bushel, which is cheap transportation with a vengeance. In years gone by this rate has been as high as 30 cents. The Erin and tow will carry 50,000 bushels.
