Did Excellent Work.

The owners of the steamer Wahcondah are pleased at the expedition shown by the Donnelly Wrecking company, Kingston, in getting the steamer out of her difficulty after she had struck a bad place at Farran's Point. Capt. Thomas Donnelly took a crew to the scene of the trouble as quickly as possible, and in a very short time he had the steam pumps at work on the new boat. The work was begun in the morning, and by afternoon the boat was out of the water and ready to proceed on her way to Toronto. She came on to this city, as is known, not much the worse for wear. She will be placed on dry-dock soon for slight repairs. [Hamilton Herald]

Decide To Sell - ......The account of the Donnelly Wrecking company for $358.60 for testing the suction pipe was referred to the chairman and the superintendent for adjustment, there being a dispute about a portion of the diver's charge.

The record breaking trip of the season was made by the steamer Reliance, which carries lumber from Deseronto, Canada, to this port for E.W. Rathbun & Co. The steamer arrived here at six o'clock Tuesday with a load of lumber and at 9:15 o'clock was unloaded and outside the piers in her return trip. She went to Deseronto, was loaded and was back here at 7:30 o'clock Wednesday morning, and unloaded at 10:30 o'clock, and the longshoremen commenced the work of reloading her with oak to be used in the car shops of the Grand Trunk railroad. It pays to have such a gang of lumber handlers on every lumber docks.

p.6 News of World - The steamer Wexford, Capt. Thomas, has arrived at Montreal from London, on her way up the lakes, to run probably between Collingwood and Port Arthur. She is of 1,340 tons.
