The Jack's Sad State

H.A. Calvin has received word that the steambarge Jack was towed into Presqu'Isle by a tug. The barge is down to her decks forward and drawing twenty-four feet aft. It is hard to tell the real extent of the damage. However, the Jack was so staunch that marine men do not believe the report that her bow was completely ruined. It is thought the bow is badly split. Mr. Calvin's intention is to have the barge patched up at Presqu'Isle, so that she may be able to come down to Kingston under her own steam. The general repairs will be done to her at the company's ship yard on Garden Island.

St. Mary's Falls Canal - Sault Ste. Marie, Mich., June 2nd - last month had greatest month's business ever.
