New Rafting Firm - A new firm, under the name of Cockburn & McArthur, for the forwarding of timber and staves to Quebec, has been established at Collinsby. Booms have been placed for holding an almost unlimited amount of timber, four timber capstans, at which four vessels can unload at the same time, have already been erected, and every provision has been made for carrying on the business of a large establishment. Last week one of their steam tugs, the E.I. Mills ?, arrived along with four vessels from Bay City with the first consignments of timber and staves. These were unloaded and have returned, and it is expected that the firm will drive a thriving business during the season.
