The Maritime History of the Great Lakes
British Whig (Kingston, ON), 11 Dec 1894

Full Text



The sloop Idlewild is being laid up for the winter.

The schr. Kate, loaded with barley for Oswego, has not got away yet.

The schr. Queen of the Lakes is expected in tonight. She will take on a cargo of coal at Oswego.

Owners of steamers contend that the Cataraqui swing bridge should be widened six feet so that it would be large enough to let such boats pass as the Empire State, North King and Hero. If the bridge was enlarged more boats would lay here during the winter months, and in this way work would be provided in the spring that is not known now. The steamer North King will be hauled out in the spring and would have been placed in Davis' dry-dock, but she cannot pass through the bridge without having her wheels removed. The prices for the government dry-dock being too high the steamer will go to Port Dalhousie.
