p.3 The Cape Boat - can't get through canal, won't stop at Wolfe Island for balance of year.

An Experiment - Messrs. D. McEwen & Son are putting the large iron tanks in the three master schooner Fanny Campbell, which has been bought for the coal oil trade. The vessel and her improvements have been visited by many interested persons. Mr. McMillan, of Montreal, must be sanguine of success when he will expend above $15,000 in the experimentof buying this vessel and fitting her out for a special purpose. The schooner will not likely do anything in the new line of business this year. She will trade directly between Sarnia and Montreal, being loaded and unloaded by steam. At Montreal a large tank is being built, sufficiently large to hold a vessel cargo of oil.
