p.3 The Richelieu & Ontario Navigation Co. held their annual meeting in Montreal last week. Their report showed a profit of $101,639 of which a dividend of four per cent absorbed $62,600, the balance, excepting $16,809 added to reserve fund, was applied to building wharves, stores, etc. The stock, which was held at about $89 at the beginning of the year, has fallen since the issuing of this statement and is selling at about $76. The year was undoubtedly a severe one on floating stock, and the competition, in which the Company indulged, still further affected its revenue. [Monetary Times]
