The Maritime History of the Great Lakes
British Whig (Kingston, ON), 14 Dec 1893

Full Text



Owing to floating ice in the American channel the str. Maud did not make her regular trip to Cape Vincent this morning.

All sailors absent from the city returned last week to spend the winter months. They received good wages during the summer.

Over a month ago Capt. Allen predicted a winter of extremes. He still asserts that it will be a season of warm and cold weather, extreme in both cases. He is right so far.

Hugh McLennan, president of the M.T. Co., and D.G. Thompson, superintendent of the concern in Montreal, are in the city. They make an annual visit to Kingston to ascertain the amount of work done during the summer, and also the work to be done in the shipyard during the winter. The company is building a large barge here.
