p.5 The steambarge City of New York passed up, today, on her way to Toronto with package freight from Montreal.

The steambarge Navajo arrived from Montreal today, with package freight, consigned to local dealers.



The schooner Tradewind passed down yesterday on her way from Deseronto to Gananoque, with a cargo of slabs.

The steambarge Navajo is expected at Richardsons' tomorrow from Montreal, with freight. This will probably be her last trip of the season.

Swift's: steamer Bickerdike due today from the east; steamer Aletha from bay points; schooner Lizzie Metzner cleared for Brockville to unload the balance of her cargo of canned goods, from South Bay.

The M.T. Co. has now only one steamer, the Advance, to arrive with grain from Fort William. The vessel is due here early next week, and this will be the wind up. Last year the last trip of the season was made by the steamers Westmount and Fairmount, which arrived on Dec. 8th. This year the closing may possibly be a little earlier, but not much earlier, at any rate.

The S.S. Midland King, one of the largest steel boats afloat in the Canadian fleet, has arrived at Port Stanley with 135,000 bushels of wheat. Thirty five thousand bushels were consigned to the John Campbell Milling Co., St. Thomas, and the balance for Kingston. The Midland King is 400 feet long, was built on the Clyde, Glasgow, Scotland, and is owned by the Collingwood Navigation company.
