p.2 Cancelled Their Trip - Owing to the rough weather last night, the steamer Aletha was unable to make her regular trip, but will clear tonight if the weather is favorable. The Aletha went over to the Cereal Works' elevator for shelter during the night.


The steamer Plummer, on her way west, laid up in port here over night on account of the rough weather.

The barges Diamond, Aberdeen and A.D. were laid up for the winter at Portsmouth today. They have been used in carrying grain from the cereal works' elevator.

The man who built the new steamer Hamonic at Collingwood is a Garden Island boy, born and brought up there, served his time in the machine shop and got the training that now fits him to be the manager of the Collingwood Shipbuilding company.

The new steamer Hamonic is to have installed a Nicholson ship log, such as the steamers Toronto and Kingston are equipped with, and which was the means of the Toronto making her regular time all through the very smoky weather the past season.

p.5 Heavy Gale on Lake - steamer Wanderer cancelled trip to Cape Vincent; steamer Wolfe Islander managed to make her usual trips.

Lake Yacht Meeting - the Lake Yacht Racing Association met at Toronto, elected officers (listed) and made some changes to rules of measurement.
