Even though the work of repairing the steamer Rosedale is begun at once it will be next to impossible to have the steamer ready for sea going before June next. Meanwhile the M.T. company, the Thousand Island steamboat company, and other boat owners will want to make use of the dock. They will have to take their work to Deseronto, Picton or elsewhere.
Thousands of citizens visited the M.T. company's and Richardson & Son's new elevators yesterday, noticing progress with evident satisfaction. When completed Kingston will be equipped with three fine elevators, having a total capacity of over one million bushels. It is to be hoped the grain trade will be so brisk that double the storage capacity will be demanded.
