p.1 Personal Mention - Capt. Henry Plumb, one of the oldest residents of Ogdensburg, and one of the best known river men on the St. Lawrence, died on Friday, aged 94 years.



The tug Bronson arrived from Montreal this morning with seven light barges.

The steamer Glengarry is being lightened of her coal cargo, preparatory to going into winter quarters.

The Kingston & Montreal forwarding company laid up six of their barges in winter quarters yesterday. The entire fleet will be laid up this week. The barge Cyrene and the two grain elevators will be hauled up on the marine railway for the winter.

The rates accepted by the steamer Tilley for carrying grain, and said to be the highest offered this fall, were beaten yesterday by the Kingston and Montreal forwarding company. Alderman J. Stewart, manager of the Kingston branch of the company, offered the str. Seguin eight cents a bushel to carry grain from Fort William to Kingston. The Seguin received an offer from a Buffalo firm of nine cents a bushel to convey grain between the ports above mentioned.
