p.1 Minister of Marine - Buffalo, N.Y., Nov. 30th - Hon. R. Prefontaine, Canadian minister of marine and fisheries, is stormbound here with his party, aboard the Canadian revenue cutter Vigilant. It now looks as if the party would hardly be able to leave before tomorrow.

p.2 The Late John Bertram - Capt. Donnelly Pays Tribute - was appointed head of the transportation commission and filled the role very well; C.F. Gildersleeve would be a good candidate to take over the role.


Two large cargoes of grain will come to Richardsons' elevator early next week.

The tug Emerson and three light barges arrived from Montreal this morning at the M.T. company elevator.

(missing) government dry dock is to be lengthened twenty-five feet. The work will be done by the Bertram company.

Capt. Pritchard has laid the tug Edmond up for the winter. On the last two trips down the river he had to break ice. This is the twenty-second year that he has put the Edmund into winter quarters after a successful operation.

p.8 Favor Gildersleeve - L.L. Henderson, local manager of the Montreal Transportation company, and H.W. Richardson, of Richardson & Sons, were seen today and both were enthusiastic over the proposal that C.F. Gildersleeve should be made chairman of the transportation commission. They both declared that no superior man could be named in the dominion. His training and his knowledge would be of infinite advantage to the country.
