Gathered in the Local Harbor. The tug Duncan City, Capt. Fred. Johnson, and her big barge No. 1, is trading between Lake Huron ports and Cleveland, Ohio, or was at last reports. She is carrying telegraph poles and cedar posts and on the last trip had the largest single cargo of this kind ever carried on the Great Lakes. This consisted of the following telegraph poles: 2,070 25-ft., 2,550 35 ft., 1,600 45-ft., 1,260 55-ft., 1412 60-ft.; a total of 8,892 posts. And then she didn't have a full load by 2,000 poles. She started to load at Sault Ste. Marie, went from there to Sault Point, then back to the Soo, from there to head of Lake Huron at Horseshoe bay, and from the latter place to Search bay in the Snow islands to complete the cargo, traveling 200 miles to pick up the load. The No. 1 is the largest coarse freight carrier on the Great Lakes, and Capt. J. P. Clark who is master of the big carrier, is proud of his charge.
