p.1 Fears For Steamer Myles - Port Arthur, Ont., Oct. 31st - There is apprehension felt that the steamer Myles has gone to the bottom. Although she left the Sault on Wednesday for this place, she has not reached here yet. She has a large cargo for merchants here. A heavy storm tied up navigation at the head of the lakes today, and few boats are venturing out. The steamer India, which left with grain, had to put back after reaching the Cape, as a terrific storm was raging. Other steamers are lying in port.

Richardson & Sons, who had her chartered, said today, that she has not yet reported at Fort William, where she was to load a cargo for Kingston.



Richardsons' wharf: steambarge Navajo from Montreal with general cargo.

Craig's wharf: propeller Michigan down yesterday; steamer Niagara up today.

The steamer Hamilton docked at Iroquois last night, because of the storm, and will likely be up today.

Swift's wharf: steamer Belleville due down today; steamer Rideau King from Ottawa tonight; steamer Aletha, bay ports.

M.T. company wharf: S.S. Rosemount and consort Hamilton cleared for Fort William; steamer Turret Cape cleared for Fort William; tug Hall cleared down with four grain-laden barges.

Charles Murphy, Ogdensburg, second mate of the ill-fated Kaliyuga, left behind in Buffalo, has written a letter to his mother, saying that his trunk containing his season's wages, and all of his clothes except those on his back was aboard the boat. Murphy went ashore to purchase some supplies for the boat, and the captain went out before he got back.

p.5 Incidents of the Day - The steamer Islander experienced a very rough passage from Clayton this morning. She will go into winter quarters in the harbor.

p.8 Montreal Couple Victims - Detroit, Nov. 1st - It is learned that Charles Laflamme, whose family resides in Montreal, was steward on the steamer Kaliyuga, given up for lost, and that his bride of two months, acting as his assistant, was with him on the vessel when it went down somewhere near the entrance to Georgian Bay, in the big storm two weeks ago.
