Port of Menominee.
A big cargo of soft coal was brought in
from below during the past week for the
Menominee Sugar Co.
The service maintained between this port
and Sturgeon Bay by the steamers Sailor
Boy and Thistle enables the traveling public
to get to and from here every few hours.
The tug Satisfaction is engaged in towing the barge R. P. Mason, and on Sunday delivered a cargo of pine kindling wood at
Kewaunee, the material being purchased for
household use by the residents.
The only sail arrivals of late have been
the craft engaged in the cedar trade between this and down-shore points. Now
and then a cargo of lumber is sent out by
water, but this is transported wholly by
The steamer Edward Buckley, Capt. Chas.
Gnewusch [sic:Gnewuch], cleared from this port Saturday
p.m. loaded with a full cargo of seasoned
lumber shipped by the Sawyer-Goodman Co. The point of destination
could not be ascertained, but it presumably went to Manistee, the home port of the Buckley.
The Arrow, Capt. P. F. Goodlet, is taking 40,000 pressed brick from Menominee
to Door county, where they will be used
for facing the exterior of the new German
Lutheran church building at Kolberg, town
of Brussels. They are landed in Sawyer,
and transported to their destination by wagon, the distance to be covered being about 14 miles.
There is nothing doing in salt fish, and
one of the east shore operators that was
here recently reports that buyers are not
disposed to make an offer for herring be
cause of the great stocks on hand, and for
which there is no demand whatever. The
business may be said to be at its lowest ebb
just at present, and no revival is looked for
until there shall be an improvement in the
business conditions in the country generally.
The Goodrich Transit Company last
week inaugurated a new and novel out
ing between Sturgeon Bay and here. By
this means passengers are enable to make
the round trip across the big bay in a little
over six hours, giving them two hours at
this port during the evening. No doubt
these excursions will become very popular
if they shall be continued while the weather,
is good, as the low fare (50c.) will be an inducement for people to travel.
