Oswego, Nov. 21st - The schooner-barge Ashland, of the Galvin Transportation company, that has been engaged in carrying pulpwood between Ha Ha Bay and Oswego the past season for the Battle Island Paper company, has been taken possession of by Attorney George N. Burt, representing the Hinds Lumber company, Chicago, mortgagees in foreclosure proceedings, and the sale thereunder is advertised for December 3rd at the court house in this city. There is a balance of $6,000 due on the purchase price of the barge. The Ashland is in the East Cove, where she is unloading pulpwood, and where she will go into winter quarters.
