The Maritime History of the Great Lakes
British Whig (Kingston, ON), 29 Nov 1892

Full Text



The str. Traveller has been laid up at Garden Island, and Captain Gazette ? and his crew left for their home at Champlain, Quebec, today.

The steamer Rosedale has 5,600 (sic) bushels of wheat this trip. She cleared from Kingston on the 15th for Fort William, loaded and arrived back on the 28th. This is considered good time.

The tug Bronson cleared for Montreal today, with eight barges of grain, consisting of 175,000 bushels. This is the last of this grain the company has to ship with the exception of the schr. Glenora's cargo.

The str. Tilley and Rosedale arrived at the M.T. Co.'s dock yesterday within two hours of each other. The Tilley has made a great record in fast sailing this season. Capt. Irvine says the fastest trip he has made this year was from Fort William to Kingston in seven and a half days, and from Duluth down in eight and a half days. On the last trip the Tilley built the Rosedale by two hours despite the fact that the former towed a barge.
