Clearances: schr. Laura D., Clayton, lumber.

The schr. B.W. Folger will be dry docked at Davis' today for general repairs.

The prop. Sheldon, Duluth, is in port. She ran aground near the Soo and has about 900 bushels of damaged wheat in her cargo of 35,000 bushels.

Strs. Kate Butterine, Kingston to Ashtabula, light; str. J.J. Hill, Kingston to Chicago, light; schr. J.G. Worts, Toledo to Kingston, passed Port Dalhousie last night.

Schr. Grantham left Davis' dry dock, last night, after having her bottom caulked. When coming down the lake a few days ago she knocked the oakum out of a seam under the foremast.

Inspecting the Slips - Mr. Howden, the superintendent of the government dredging plant, was in the city Monday afternoon, and, in company of the mayor and city engineer, visited the slips at the foot of Earl, Johnson and Queen streets. It was pointed out that these slips needed cleaning. Mr. Howden said the dredge Nipissing would arrive from Wolfe Island on Wednesday and would commence the work of dredging the slips at once.

General Paragraphs - A heavy fog existed on the lake, this morning, and thus delayed the prop. Glengarry and tow. It is expected she will arrive this afternoon.

Ernest Gallagher, second engineer on the tug Bronson, had his neck and face badly scalded at Prescott, Monday. It was caused by a plug escaping.

News In Small Lots - Joseph Jamieson, whose men were doing the plumbing work on the steamer Spartan, states that they did not, as reported, leave a cap off one of the pipes by which the leak was caused, on the night of watchman Hagerty's death. The blame should fall on some of the boat crew.
