Full Text



The schr. Acacia is unloading her cargo of coal at Swift & Co.'s dock.

The schr. Fleetwing is expected in at Swift's dock today from Charlotte.

The schr. Fabiola will lay up here for some time. The coal business is exceptionally quiet.

Booth & Co. have most of their coal in. Their vessel, the schr. Loretta Rooney, is now laid up awaiting orders.

The two parts of the S.S. Rosemount have been gotten together and the rivetters were started today. There are about eighteen rivetters at work and about forty men engaged on the work altogether.

Capt. John McComisky, on the prop. Myles, who has had to lay up for three weeks, owing to illness, is able to be around again. He will resume his duties on the propeller as soon as she comes down here.

The prop. St. Lawrence has arrived in from the upper lakes with 60,000 bushels of wheat for the M.T. Co. At present there are three steamers and one consort tied up at the M.T. Co. awaiting barges. A tow came up this morning. On account of the rush at Prescott the company has had difficulty in getting rid of their stuff here.
