The Maritime History of the Great Lakes
British Whig (Kingston, ON), Sept. 7, 1888

Full Text



The schr. Grantham will load ore for Cleveland.

The schr. Erie Stewart is in port with 573 tons of coal from Sandusky.

When the barge Wheatbin was passing down the canal near Montreal on Wednesday, a man whose name is at present unknown fell into the water and was drowned. The harbor police are searching for the body.

The damages to the schr. D. Freeman are slight above the water line but the injury to the bottom of the vessel is so extensive that it will take $1,500 or thereabouts to repair it. The Freeman is in Oswego, where she will be docked and repaired. It will be three weeks or a month before she is ready for business again.
