p.1 General Paragraphs - The steambarge Waterlily is loading timber at this port for Picton.

The str. Owen Sound and consort Worts arrived this morning from Fort William with wheat for Richardson Bros.

A Poor Season For Them.

The grain shovellers will not reap a harvest this season owing to the small amount of grain arriving. Of course they have a full month or more in which to catch up, but the prospect of a rush of business occurring is indeed slim. The quantity of grain necessary to cause this is not moving, besides the lowness of the water prevents big cargoes from coming down the lakes and more is being carried by the railroads. Altogether, matters tend to lessen the earnings of the shovellers at this port and they will be satisfied if they make an average year.
