ELEVATOR GLUT SLOWS SHIPPING
The freighter Mancox is tied up at the C.P.R. dock here waiting improvement of the seasonal slowing up of grain movements, both form the Lakehead ports, of Port Arthur and Fort William, and the shipping of grain from Montreal elevators.
According to the Yankcanuck Steamship Company, to which the Mancox belongs, the grain situation is very slow at the present time, elevators in the all ports being crammed. The exceptionally heavy grain crop in the prairie provinces this year will tend to make the situation a little more complicated.
Col. G. N. Phillips, superintendent of the Sault Ship canal said that shipping does not seem to be slowing up to any marked degree and he expects the situation to clear up in a few days.
