To Take Control.

Francis King, secretary of the Dominion Marine Association, says the organization will ask the federal government to take charge of all terminal elevators. Farmers and shippers of the west have been clamoring for this for a long time. The government will also be asked to require the installation of trimming spouts on all loading elevators. This is to do away with the trimming gangs at the head of the lakes, who are said to make every boat hire them, or they cause them a great deal of delay in clearing the port.


Abandoned Work.

Buffalo, March 14th - The wreckers have again abandoned the wrecked steamer W.C. Richardson, two miles out from Buffalo harbor, and if they make another attempt to float the sunken vessel it will probably not be until the middle of April or perhaps later, at any rate not until the ice has disappeared from this end of Lake Erie. It all depends upon the condition of the wreck then whether they will be able to release the steamer at all.
