Swift's wharf: due, steamers Spartan up and Corsican down.

Craig's wharf: steamer Cuba up; steamer Alexandria due up tonight.

Richardsons' elevator: schooner Maggie L. from bay ports with grain.

M.T. company elevator: tug Bronson up with three light barges and cleared down with two barges, grain-laden.

The steamer Rosemount and consort Minnedosa, from Fort William, with wheat, are expected at the M.T. company elevator tomorrow.

The steamer Myles, from Fort William with corn, is expected at Richardsons' elevator today. The steamer Rosedale, from Fort William, with wheat, should be on Sunday or Monday morning.

p.4 To Run A Ferry - It is expected that the Picton-Adolphustown ferry will be running by June under the management of William Powlis, who has for a number of years successfully run the one between Prince Edward shore and Deseronto. Citizens have suscribed a goodly sum towards it besides the $150 voted by the council.

p.5 Will Use Four Steamers - The steamers America, St. Lawrence, Islander, and New Island Wanderer will all be required to handle the crowds coming to Kingston on Tuesday morning via Cape Vincent, and hence the Folgers will not be able to place any of their boats on the run from Alexandria Bay to Clayton. No doubt some other small river boats will run from those places. The outlook is that even the four White Squadron steamers will be unable to carry all the crowd from New York State points, and even the old Pierrepont may have to be brought into requisition.

Incidents Of The Day - Over $1,000 has been spent in repairs on the schooner Marianette, in Davis' dry dock.

p.6 Has Millions To Spend - Cleveland, Ohio, May 20th - The Lake Carriers' Association is prepared to spend, or rather to lose, $15,000,000 to win the fight, if necessary. "We had to meet this question some time or other," he added, "and a better year to tie up our vessels could not have been chosen than the present one."
