p.1 First Wheat From Fort William - Fort William, Sept. 9th - The first shipment of new wheat left here on Saturday, being consigned by J. Richardson & Sons, of Kingston, to Goderich. The steamer Doric had the honor of carrying the shipment, filling one compartment with No. 1 Northern from Manitoba.



The large boom on the schooner St. Louis, which is discharging coal at the M.T. Co.'s wharf, was smashed on Monday as a result of the schooner jamming the barge Ungava. The wind was very contrary, and as a result the vessel came into the wharf faster than it was expected. The injury to the Ungava was not sufficient to delay her trip on Monday night.

The steamer Sowards, which went aground on Monday, was released and arrived at the asylum wharf on Tuesday morning to discharge her cargo.

An extensive repair job is being done on the steamer Beaverton in the Shipbuilding company's dock. Quite a number of stays and plates have been taken away to be replaced.

p.7 Incidents of the Day - The steamer Wolfe Islander stopped over at the city wharf all Monday night after it had brought the guests home from the dance held at McLaren's. A stiff north wind was blowing and the waves were beating pretty heavily against the wharf at the island, so the captain decided to remain in a more sheltered spot.
