The Maritime History of the Great Lakes
British Whig (Kingston, ON), 28 Oct 1909

Full Text



The tug Edmund and barge Columbia, loaded with wood, arrived from Bedford Mills, and are unloading at Crawford's.

M.T. Co.: The tug Bronson arrived from Montreal with three light barges; tug Bartlett arrived from Lake Erie with two coal barges, cleared for Montreal with one grain barge and two coal barges; steamer Fairmount and barge Ungava are due tonight from Fort William with grain.

As a result of the re-organization of the Argyle Steamship company, which taking in new Canadian and American funds will increase its capital by $110,000, there will be a fine new passenger steamer on the lake next season. Connection will be made with the network of electric railroads out of Olcott through Lockport with Buffalo, Rochester and New York, taking her operations outside the lines of purely pleasure excursions.
