The Montreal transportation company is building a new barge to have a capacity of 55,000 bushels of grain.

On Tuesday the prop. Ocean, which was sunk and raised, was launched from the ways at Deseronto. She was thoroughly repaired.

The str. Empire State's shaft broke while she was on a search light trip last week. On the day following the Folger company had to carry 3,000 excursionists, but managed the business successfully despite the crippling. The vessel has been repaired in Kingston.

As a result of the investigation into the cause of the collision of the steamers Islander and Alert at Round Island on July 27th, both captains have been suspended pending further investigations. Capt. Kendall, of the steamer Empire State, has assumed temporary charge of the str. Islander.
