p.2 Newsy Items - Capt. D. Noonan to make two trips a week from Kingston to Portland on str. Robert Anglin.

The Clayton Regatta - [Palladium]



Freights have dropped in Chicago. The rates paid to Kingston are: on corn 6 1/4 cents; on wheat, 6 3/4 cents. The following are chartered: Schr. Ada Medora, 20,000 bush. corn; Samana, 18,000 bush. corn; Kate Kelly, 16,000 bush. wheat.

A very pretty race occurred between the steam yachts Oneida, of Brockville, and R.P. Flower, of Alexandria Bay, on Sunday morning while crossing from the latter place to Rockport. It was about "nip and tuck" the whole distance.

While on her regular trip around Well's Island, on Saturday evening, the steamer Island Wanderer broke her shaft and was obliged to lay up all night at Gananoque. Her passengers were transferred and taken to the Bay.

The schr. F.B. Gardner, Chicago, 26,975 bush. corn; schr. Itasca, Chicago, 23,122 bush. corn; schr. Lem Ellsworth, Chicago, 28,012 bush. wheat; schr. J. Gaskin, Toledo, 37,600 bush. wheat; schr. Glenora, Toledo, 40,300 bush. wheat; schr. N.P. Downey, Belleville, 5,672 bush. wheat have arrived at the Montreal Transportation Coy's wharf.

The Canadian propeller Prussia was inspected at Chicago by the special inspectors. She was found "all O.K." She is allowed sixty-five pounds of steam and is allowed to carry fifty-seven passengers. The Canadian propeller Alma Munro gets no certificate to carry passengers. She is not equipped for the passenger traffic. In the freight business she is all right.
