p.2 Outlook for Kingston - hotel keeper H. Harkness thinks that as the capacity of elevators at Fort William grows, so should the number of elevators at Kingston.
A Successful Season.
The Oswego Palladium says that the steamer Arundell has made a snug sum of money for her owners this year. So satisfactory has the season been that the company talks of either putting on a larger boat next season or running a second boat from Kingston to Ogdensburg, making daily trips with the Arundell across the lake. What the route demands is a larger boat, one that will make the trip between Oswego and Kingston in three hours. The Arundell's greatest earnings were made out of Oswego in Sunday excursions.
Snips - The steamer Bohemian, of the R. & O. navigation company's line, will run between Brockville and Montreal for the balance of the season. The water in the rapids is too low to allow of the other boats of the line to go direct through.
The steamer Algerian called at Swift's wharf this morning on her way to Toronto. The schooner Fabiola arrived last night with a cargo of coal from Oswego.
The tug Bronson, with two grain laden barges, cleared last evening for Montreal. She called at Prescott and picked up two more grain laden barges.
The R. & O. navigation steamer Algerian will go into winter quarters on the 15th inst. Trade is very dull.
The schooner Grantham cleared this morning for Oswego to load coal for the Kingston penitentiary.
