Full Text

The barge A. HOTCHKISS arrived here from River, Ontario, with a cargo of 1,127,560 ft. of lumber. She is a new vessel built at Collingwood by Messrs. Hotchkiss, Hughson & Co. She is a good sea boat with a mould which enables her to tow very easily for a vessel of her size. The tug WALES towed her here in company with the barge ONTARIO, the united cargo amounting to nearly a million and a half feet of lumber.
