Capt. Jas. Brooks is first officer on Goodrich liner Atlanta.

Most of the windbound fleet got away Wednesday morning.

The tug Golden was in port Saturday for a short time while bound south.

The coal dock of Leathem & Smith is undergoing repairs, new timbers and planking being put in.

The tug Alice left for Manistee with the new tug Sunday night, having been delayed in port a couple of days by the storm.

So far the month of September has been an unusually stormy one, the equinocial gales being extremely heavy and continuous.

The schooner Annie O Hanson lay in port Sunday, and the next day was towed out in Green bay, being bound to Menominee for cargo.

The steambarge Edward Buckley arrived in port Thursday and will be given an extensive rebuild at the shipyard of Rieboldt, Wolter & Co.

While pulling on the port bow of the steamer Atlanta Wednesday morning the tug Nelson tore out the chalk, carrying with it considerable of the lightwork also.

The schooners Lizzie Metzner and Ida loaded at the island mill within the week. The latter has just completed repairs at the shipyard and took on 250,000 feet of hemlock lumber.

All the tugs in port got a pull at the Atlanta but unfortunately several of the best were out of port. It was a hard job, as well as a very expensive one for the Goodrich company.

The steambarge S. M. Stephenson, Capt. James Sanford, lay in port Sunday while having her compass adjusted by C. E. Long. She was in light trim and bound to Menominee for cargo.

The most of the passengers are still on board the Atlanta. The list is a light one, however.
