The day of the old wind jammers on the lake is past. There are now 28 schooners in commission on Lake Ontario, where formerly there were several hundred, and they are nearly all Canadian owned, though nearly all once had an American register.
As the old schooners and sail crafts pass away their type is not reproduced, but instead small steamers that have found it impossible to longer do business at a profit in competition with the 600-footers, are coming to Lake Ontario and are being used in the coal carrying trade, going into harbors, where the water is not too shallow and even then can be brought in with a partial cargo with will require less water than they usually draw. With a few exceptions all are owned by Canadian coal dealers and companies.
