p.1 Third Class Yacht Race -



The schooner H.M. Ballou has been sold to parties at Sodus Point for $1,600.

The steamer Hastings is now running between St. Catharines and Toronto while the Exhibition continues.

The tug Caribou and barges of Montreal collided with the yacht Cricket while leaving Oswego harbor. The yacht was damaged to the extent of $50. The tug, without taking any notice of the yacht, passed within three feet of her. The first barge struck the Cricket fair in the stern, smashing in her quarter. When the Caribou returns she will have to pay for the damages, as under a recent decision yachts have the same rights as the largest crafts.

The arrivals at the Montreal Transportation Company are: Schr. John Gaskin, Toledo, 36,500 bush. corn; schr. Glenora, Toledo, 42,375 bush. corn; prop. Lake Ontario, Chicago, 6,500 bush. wheat; prop. Tecumseh, Chicago, 33,503 bush. corn; barge Oneida, Oswego, 500 tons coal; barge Seneca, Oswego, 520 tons coal.

The schrs. Two Brothers, Falconer and Baltic are loading lumber for Rathbun for Oswego.
