Craig's wharf: steamers Lake Michigan up last night; Persia down this morning; Ocean up tonight.

Richardsons' elevator: schooners Highland Beauty from Wellington, and Laura D. and Granger from bay ports, with grain.

M.T. company elevator: schooner Metzner from Trenton with barley; tug Bronson down with three grain-laden barges; tug Thomson up with three light barges.

p.5 Mr. Folger's Kind Action - The Bertram lease of the steamer Pierrepont for the Wolfe Island ferry terminated yesterday, and the Islanders would have been in hard luck had not Henry Folger telegraphed from Toronto this morning to Assistant Manager Goodearle to run the boat in the meantime without charge to the Islanders, their representatives being in Toronto looking after the new ferry boat. Mr. Folger's act will certainly be warmly appreciated by the Wolfe Island people.
