The names of several others are to be added to this list, which will be published as soon as the changes are announced.

The following boats will go or have left to engage in the coast trade this year: Norwalk, Lackawanna, Fisher, Owego, Brownell, George McCullough, Binghamton, Jesse Spaulding, E. L. Hines, W. C. Rhodes, Huron, Minneapolis, St. Paul, Bennington, Ogdensburg, Rutland, Arlington, Brandon, Beatty, Gettysburg, A. Anderson, Arenac, Moore, Maryland, Harvey Brown.

It is said that the Selwyn Eddy may also keave the lakes to engage in the coast trade. A fleet of more than 40 Canadian boats that have passed up and down the Detroit river many times are now engaged in the coast trade. When the war is over it is expected that most of them will return to the lakes.
