The Maritime History of the Great Lakes

Very little is doing in Marine circles here this winter. About once a week a boat goes to the elevators for grain. It is now the EMILY P. WEED's turn. The demand so far for winter loading has been small, but vesselmen have not worried themselves about that as they feel there will be plenty of grain before spring. just now a great deal of interest is centering on the. Cleveland iron ore situation. Chicago vesselmen are bulls, and it will take better than $1.25 from Ashland to get them.
