Several Kingston vessel owners condemn strongly the traffic in coal on American barges from United States ports to points on the Rideau canal or other inland waters. They claim that they are debarred from taking their vessels into American state canals and that it is only fair that the Yankees should not have that privilege on Canadian waters.

The steamer Lora is now on the route from Charlotte to the Thousand Islands. She arrived this morning at four leaving at nine o'clock. The Lora was built in 1885. She is 161 feet long and 32 feet beam. She has a four hundred horsepower engine and an average speed of fifteen miles an hour. The cabins and staterooms are handsomely furnished. The Lora is owned by George A. Buck and C.L. Stowell ?, Rochester, F.W. Wheeler, West Bay City, and John Morrow, of Cleveland. The Lora has been running between Buffalo and Cleveland.
