Men From The Lockwood Believed To Have Drowned.

Cleveland, Oct. 17th - All hope that the ten men who had left the foundering steamer C.B. Lockwood off the port of Astabula in Lake Erie Monday night, were still alive were dispelled when the overturned boat that they had embarked in was picked up late yesterday off that port by the boat J.C. Grammer. The missing men are: Second mate - John Britt, Toledo; chief engineer David Burns, Marine City; Henry Rossman, second engineer, Fairhaven; Fireman Fred Green, Marine City; Fireman Julius Schmidt, residence unknown; Joseph P. Orey, oiler, Fair Haven; William Miller, deck hand, residence not known, and two deck hands, and one fireman, names not known.



Craig's wharf: steamer Alexandria up.

Swift's wharf: steamer Rideau Queen from Ottawa.

Crawford's wharf: schooner Acacia from Charlotte with soft coal.

M.T. company elevator: S.S. Rosemount and consorts arrive tonight from Fort William with wheat.

The steamer Calvin and consort Ceylon cleared from Garden Island this morning for Georgian Bay to load timber for the Calvin Company.

The tug Col. By and barge have gone to Blake's quarry, on Rideau canal, for a load of sandstone to be used in the construction of a new dwelling for Dr. Sands. It will be the first dwelling in the city in which this class of stone is used.

p.3 Charge Was Dismissed - Alderman Walkem presided on the bench in the police court this morning. The only case was a charge against Capt. Roys of the steamer Rival, of running in waters outside of those in which his steamer was licensed to ply. As Capt. Roys was recently fined on a similar charge, the case was dismissed.

p.8 Wreck Driven Ashore - Capt. Simmons and Paul Reid have returned from the wreck of the steamer Owen, abandoned on the south shore of Prince Edward County. They found that the action of the wind had driven the wreck ashore and she now lies in about 3 1/2 feet of water. Parties are accused of stealing from the wreck.

Incidents of the Day - Another turret steamship for the Canadian Great Lakes Navigation company will be in port Saturday afternoon. She will remain some days to receive repairs.

Commercial Matters - At a meeting of the directors of the Richelieu and Ontario Navigation company, a dividend of 3% for the half-year was declared payable the first of November next. The boats go into winter quarters on the 25th of November.
