p.2 Incidents of the Day - M.T. company elevator: tugs Thomson and Glide up with four light barges.

p.4 Hard On the Bottom - Ogdensburg, Nov. 26th - Knapp's roller boat, yesterday, in a blinding snowstorm, rolled from Prescott across the St. Lawrence river to Ogdensburg, but missed the channel to the upper harbor and rolled into the soft mud on a bar abreast of the city and settled hard. Efforts to tow her into deep water were unsuccessful and she may not be released until spring.

p.5 The Barges Arriving - The tug Nellie Reid and four barges of the Kingston & Montreal forwarding company, arrived at noon today from Montreal. The barges will go into winter quarters at Portsmouth after a prosperous season. The tug May P. Bell also arrived from Ogdensburg with the schooner Lapwing. Next week all the barges of the line will be in winter quarters at Portsmouth. The barge Dakota, which arrived today from Montreal, had aboard 100 tons of iron for the locomotive works.

Incidents of the Day - James Stewart, who arrived today from Ogdensburg, saw the Knapp roller boat go ashore there yesterday.

James Stewart, of the Canada Atlantic transportation company, Coteau, says that during the past three years the company has handled 35,000,000 bushels of grain and not a single bushel has been wet or in any way damaged. The company's success was the occasion of a special report by Capt. Donnelly, inspector of Inland Lloyds.
