Fears Are Entertained For The Bannockburn.

The M.T. company S.S. Bannockburn, laden with 95,000 bushels of wheat for Midland, which left Port Arthur last Friday and was due to arrive at Sault Ste. Marie Saturday, has failed to arrive. Stormy weather has prevailed on Lake Superior and it is feared by some that she may have foundered. The crew of the Bannockburn are all Canadians, most of them residing in Kingston; the captain is George Woods, of Port Dalhousie.

Mr. Henderson, inside manager of the company, was asked this afternoon if any further tidings had been received. He replied that there had not, but the company was not feeling at all worried. Snow storms may have thrown her off her course. The Bannockburn has withstood worse weather before, and may turn up alright.
