C. W. Elphicke (Propeller), U126568, 24 Dec 1891
- Full Text
Duluth is expected to have in store at the opening of navigation about 19,000,000 bushels of grain, and rates for winter storage and delivery in the spring indicate accordingly, the strong feeling with regard to next season's business. Chicago grain shippers are Offering 5 + cents on wheat and are now loading a few boats at that figure, but most owners are holding off for a higher rate. At Duluth the steamers GILCHRIST, JOHN MITCHELL, HARPER and barge NORTHWEST have been loaded on a 6 cent rate for wheat and the steamer NIMICK on a 6 + cent rate for flax seed. The steamer ELPHICKE has a cargo of wheat at a 7 cent freight rate, taken on with the expectation of making delivery before navigation closed. The S.R. KIRBY and CITY OF LONDON also wintering at Duluth are held at 8 cents.
