p.3 A New Trade - Some time ago we referred to the fact that Messrs. D. McEwan & Son, machinists, were engaged in the construction of tanks for the carriage of coal oil in bulk from one place to another. The firm is now engaged in fitting the tanks into the schooner Fanny Campbell, which has been purchased for the oil trade. It is not probable anything will be done in the trade this year, but the vessel will be ready for next season.
