The steamer Stranger went to Gananoque Friday with freight.

The government dredge Sir Richard is at work at the foot of Garden Island.

Swift's: steamer Dundurn west today; steamer Belleville east today; steamer Aletha down and up today.

Considerable complaint is being made about grain vessels arriving in Kingston with their cargo short of the amount called for.

Capt. Malone, of the steamer Prince Rupert, in port from Fort William today, stated that Kingston had more snow than any place along his route. They had some rain, but very little snow.

The steamer Prince Rupert arrived from Fort William with 76,000 bushels of wheat for Richardsons' elevator. The Prince Rupert towed the barge Ceylon, laden with timber, from Toledo, for the Calvin company.

The steamer Turret Cape, while going from the M.T. Co.'s elevator to Richardsons'

elevator, to unload damaged grain, ran into Crawford's wharf and tore up one section of it. The vessel itself escaped damage. The man at the wheel evidently misjudged the distance, and as the steamer was light it was impossible to make a quick stop.

M.T. Co.'s elevator: The tugs Bronson and Thomson, from Montreal, three light barges each; tug Bronson cleared for Montreal, three grain-laden barges; tug Thomson cleared for Montreal with three grain barges; steamer Morley will arrive today from Duluth wth wheat, and steamer Neebing will arrive from Fort William with wheat; the tug Bartlett will clear for Fairhaven with two barges to load coal.

M.T. Co. Wins - Judge Hodgins has given judgement in the case of the M.T. company vs the Atlantic Coast company, regarding the barge Buckeye State. The M.T. Company wins all through, and receives $2,500 salvage.
