p.1 Pith of the News - The barge Madeira is believed to have gone down in Lake Superior with a crew of twelve men.



There was a thin scum of ice in the slips this morning.

The sloop Idlewild has gone into ordinary near Craig's wharf.

The steamer Donnelly has gone to Oshawa, to release the schooner Oliver Mowat.

The large steamers of the M.T. company, to winter at Midland, will hold their grain cargoes.

The tug Bronson brought up four light barges to the M.T. company's wharf, and cleared down light.

The schooner Maggie L. brought a cargo of grain from bay ports to Richardsons' elevator.

p.5 The Rosemount Released - Port Arthur, Nov. 30th - The steamer Rosemount, which was blown ashore on Mutton Island, in Thunder Bay, was released by the tug Whalen, after being lightered, and steamed into port. A mass of ice covered her sides and deck, and even reached as far up as the smokestack. The Rosemount is none the worse for her misadventure, and this afternoon is taking back into her hold the wheat taken from her in being lightered.
