p.5 Very Little Ore Moving - Detroit, Sept. 17th - Well informed vessel owners are of the opinion that not much ore will come down during the month of November and that the close of navigation will come unusually early. There is very little dock space left at Lake Erie ports, and as shipping orders are not coming in very freely the outlook for a good movement, during the remainder of the season, is not very bright. The leading shippers are planning to clean up early and that means that shipments will be out all around as soon as cold weather sets in.
