The management of the steamer Wolfe Islander is still figuring on making structural changes in the steamer this coming winter, so as to make the vessel steadier and of greater carrying capacity. The work can be done under the head of repairs and the cost would be about $1,500 for adding sponsons and false sides. The Wolfe Islander would be a far better boat if false sides were added. It could carry 300 passengers for one thing, and for another it would be more satisfactory to the island people.

Withdrawing Boats.

Cleveland, Oct. 20th - Independent owners are planning on withdrawing their boats and cutting off expenses as early as possible. Arrangements were made today to load at once the boats already under charter. Storage grain cargos at the head of Lake Superior during the last five days show no diminution. The grain rates are unchanged at one cent to Buffalo for prompt loading and two cents for storage capacity.
