Ontario Company Claims Its Work Constitutes A Lien.

[Montreal Gazette]

The Collins Bay rafting and forwarding company, Collins Bay, Ont., has taken out a saisie conservatoire against Poupore & Malone, contractors for works in the harbor of Montreal; to attach thirty pieces of timber on board the steamer Saturn, and 1,038 pieces of timber on the wharf, to which the steamer is attached. The timber is valued at $13,350. The affidavit on which the seizure is based, was made by Peter McArthur, timber merchant, Detroit, president of the rafting company, owner of the Saturn.

The oak seized was shipped at Sandusky, Ohio, by Kirk, Christy & Co., Cleveland. On the trip to Montreal the Saturn grounded, August 15th, at Pigeon Island. The captain in order to save the ship and cargo, employed the services of a tug and lighter, and altogether incurred an expense of over $1,000. The loss of time and the repairs to the vessel, necessitated by reason of the accident, will amount to a larger sum. The plaintiffs claim that the expenses are imputable to the ship and her cargo, and as such a claim constitutes a lien upon the timber, they have, through their attorneys, applied for the writ of attachment.

p.5 Incidents of the Day - The schooner Fleetwing cleared for Charlotte.

The steambarge Owen, Capt. Simmons, made a quick trip this week. She left Kingston for Oswego with a load of lumber, unloaded, loaded a cargo of coal, and was back in Kingston in twenty four hours.

The inspection papers ran out a few days ago and the owner failed to renew. The yacht is tied up at Clayton.
