Coalfax is Coming Tonight for Coal
The steamer Coalfax, of the Coal Carriers Company of Montreal, will arrive in Oswego Tuesday at midnight, to load soft coal for Montreal at the Lackawanna coal dock. This is the first of four cargoes that the Coalfax has been chartered for in the next three weeks.
The steamer Patdoris will load 1,000 tons of anthracite next week for Kingston, Ont., and the Warrenco, 800 tons, Wednesday.
The schooner Lyman M. Davis has been windbound with a soft coal cargo for several days. Loading schooners is no very profitable when soft coal is the cargo, according to Lackawanna trestle forces, as it requires as long a time to load the Davis as it does a 2,400 ton steamer owing to small hatches and the necessity for hand trimming the cargo. The steamer Islin will return Wednesday for 2,400 tons of bituminous coal.
