The barge Halsted, Oscar Mattson commanding, left port Friday morning in tow of the steamer Edward Buckley for Indiana harbor, where the barge will take on a cargo of cement for Marinette. The Buckley in command of Capt. James Mlarnik arrived here from Nahma, where it took on a cargo of lumber for Muskegon.
The steamer Buckley arrived here yesterday with 12,000 sacks of cement for the Fuller Goodman company and the cargo is considered of great value to builders of the county. For weeks building operations throughout the county has been held up because of a shortage of cement. Thousands of dollars worth of work on barns, silos,granaries, garages and other buildings was delayed on this account. Occasional car-loads of cement were received here this spring but the supply was not near as great as the demand. The cargo on the Buckley is about 3,000 barrels and was loaded at Indiana harbor. It is necessary to truck the cement 18 miles from the factory to the loading point.
