The Toronto Lumber Co's tug Cherokee arrived here Tuesday night from South Bay. She reported seeing a steam barge ashore on Club Island but was unable to go to her assistance for want of fuel. The tug left here Wednesday morning for Spanish River for the purpose of towing down the disabled Enterprise. Manitoulin Expositor.
OUR OPINION - The Manitoulin Expositor wants to know what we think of the Northern Belle. Well we think her a very nice and tidy little boat for mild weather. But friend Expositor she is rated A21/2 and not B21/2 as you quote.
THEIR HARBOR - The Campana put into Owen Sound on her last trip she attempted to take on freight . But , alas for the mud hole! The boat had to steam out to a safe distance, anchor, and lay there while the tug Annie Foster, took several loads of freight out to her. And that's the kind of harbour which is to be the only one on the Georgian Bay.
STORMY - The Northern Belle went out on her last trip for the season on Sunday morning, but owning to the severity of the weather, she had to put back, and remained in port during Sunday's blow. She put out again, however, on Monday morning and her trip is near completion by this time. She took a large load of freight with her, and had to leave behind a still larger.
ROBBED BY A COMPANION - Allan Rayner and Thomas Carroll were fellow passengers and close companions on the steamer Emerald from Algoma Mills to Owen Sound. During the passage Rayner. It is alleged, relieved his companion of a purse containing $20, and on arriving at their destination made all haste for Toronto, where he was arrested yesterday afternoon and lodged in the Agnes street police station. - Mail
Yesterday was the third anniversary of the Waubuno disaster.
OTHER SUFFERERS - Says the Manitoulin Expositor Chas..Woodward, of Gore Bay, informs us that we were in error last week in stating that no family on the Island was left in straitened circumstances as the result of the loss of the Asia. The family of Alex McAlpine of this village consisting of a widow and five children, have lost their sole support by the disaster. - Robertson of Ice Lake Settlement also leaves a widow and twelve children. The family however has since removed to Collingwood.
NEW BOAT - The Great Northern Transit Company have let the contract for building another boat to the Owen Sound Dry Dock Company. The new boat it is said will be called the Pacific....
LAID UP - Our fleet has about completed the season's work. The Francis Smith and Northern Belle left on Monday morning for the Sault, their last trip this season. The crew of the City of Owen Sound became demoralized and that boat went to Owen Sound on Monday night to lay up for the winter. The St. Paul and Toledo of the Chicago line, left the one on Monday the other on Tuesday morning to return no more this season. The Emerald is laid up at Owen Sound. The Onieda and Canada will return from their final trips this week and probably lay up here for the winter. The Maganettawan will make one or two more trips to Parry Sound.
OWEN SOUND Nov. 21 - The steamer City of Owen Sound of the Canada Transit Company arrived here this morning to go into winter quarters, having completed a very successful season's trade. The City made eighteen trips to Duluth without meeting with any accident or delay, and this is a large if not a larger number of round trips than has been made to Duluth this season by any one steamer plying on Lake Superior. She intends going on the dry dock for the winter when the owners propose giving her a thorough overhauling and will put in new arches and strengthening plates. They also contemplate making a change in her machinery making her a coal-burner instead of wood. This will economize running expenses and increase her carrying capacity, a change necessary in view of the rapidly increasing trade of this route.
