An Ogdensburg despatch says: "The report is current along the frontier that the capitalists behind the Long Sault power scheme purpose buying a controlling interest in the Richelieu & Ontario Navigation company, the chief opponent of the power scheme. The steamship company desires that the rapids remain as they are in order to attract tourists. Many of the towns along the border which have been opposing the power scheme during the past year, are now advocating that the rapids be converted into cheap power, in order that Eastern Ontario may be able to cope industrially with Western Ontario, where manufacturing is flourishing, largely through obtaining cheap power from Niagara Falls.
