p.1 Dams Wanted - along Rideau lakes to hold back water.



When the steamer Glenmount arrived at the M.T. Co.'s elevator at noon, today, with a cargo of grain from Fort William, one would have thought that she came from the North Pole. The vessel was coated over with ice, and gave every evidence of having been up against some cold weather. The crew report a fine trip, however, as far as navigation goes, but there was some class all right to the kind of weather. But then this is all in a sailor's life, and they had to "grin and bear it"

The steamer Keystorm went out of the government dry dock this afternoon and the steamer India will go into the dock tomorrow.

This morning the storm drums were placed up for a double-header gale from the west.

The steamer Glenmount was expected to arrive at the M.T. Co.'s elevator on Monday, but was delayed. Word was received that she would arrive on Tuesday.

The members of the crew of the tug Bartlett were paid off yesterday and left for their respective homes.

The crew of the steamer City of Montreal, discharging corn at Richardson's elevator, were paid off on Monday.

To Enlarge Wolfe Islander - The Wolfe Island council met on Wednesday afternoon and decided to enlarge and improve the steamer Wolfe Islander, at a cost of $6,000. The boat will be lengthened fifteen feet and false sides will be added. The steamer will then be able to carry 375 passengers, as compared to 175 at present. The council decided that the money would be well expended in enlarging the steamer, which is not large enough to carry the island passengers and freight.
