Anglin's wharf: schooner Two Brothers, from Oswego, with coal.

Crawford's wharf: schooners Annandale and Fleetwing, from Oswego, with coal.

Garden Island: steamer Calvin, from Charlotte, with soft coal for the Calvin company.

M.T. company elevator: schooner Katie Eccles, from Colborne, with 7,000 bushels of rye and oats.

Ex-Policeman Hazlett goes on the tug Mary as engineer. That vessel plies between Ogdensburg and Quebec.

The schooner S.H. Dunn is in Davis & Sons' dry-dock to receive a thorough overhauling. She will be caulked from stem to stern, repainted and receive any other necessary repairs.

Vessel owners find it difficult to obtain caulkers to attend to their boats this season. There is a scarcity of skilled labor. Wages have advanced, owing to the formation of a union, from $2 to $2.50 a day. These wages are the same as paid at Oswego and other points along the United States shore.

p.5 FOLGERS WIN - Visgers are restrained from landing people at Cornwall, Crossman and Fine View docks. [Syracuse Post-Standard]

Canal Tolls Suspended - for two years to be free to all. [Montreal Herald]
