Caroline Newton, Secretary. The Harbor. "Williams & Co. now have two dredges at work upon their contract. Not over three weeks will elapse before they will have one cut clear in. This will give a channel without any doubt thirteen feet deep. Another cut is being brought iri as rapidly as possible. Doing the tow ing for two dredges is about all the work that the tug Eliza Williams dan get along with comfortably, but she docs the work, but it keeps her busy "early and late. Geo. D. Greenfield is captain and Chas. Marcox is engineer, and it i3 safe to say that they enjoy very few leisure moments. Was the tug not well manned she could not do all that is required of her. Shipping: Notes. The shipping business was very light during the past week. A vessel was loaded with cedar posts for Roblin, and one with lumber for Nelson, Strohn & Co. A number of Vessels were loaded at Duncan, there being four there at one time. The bad weather prevented sev eral vessels which were chartered from putting in an appearance on timo. It is probable that the business will be better next week. Bears Killed. We noticed last week the trnpii of a young bear noar Mr. Schaimcnck's and-the escape for the time being of the other two. We how notice the killing of the two. Last Wednesday the two pons of Mr. Schannenck in com pany with Michael Smith, were out hunt ing, and getting track of them followed them to their nest and shot them, an old one and a young one. The nest was made by three trees which had fallen to gether. Tht boys naturally feci a little elated over having killed three bears in a little over a week. To be "Well" Taught. The children in one of the school districts in the town of Grant have a prospect of being well taught the coming winter. The modera tor and assessor have engaged one teach er, and the director has engaged another. There seems to be a littft clash of au thority among the "powers that be," but with such a prospect ahead, surely the children ought not to complain. We would advise the school officers to decide the matter without a quarrel, for such a contention once commenced seldom ends. Schooner Grounded. The schooner Niagara, which reported here on the 8th, ran on a sand bar off South Manitou dur ing the storm on Thursday night. The wrecking tug Leviathan was telegraphed for, and left for her assistance on Monday night Arriving on the ground it was found that the Niagara had got oft" with out much injury. The Leviathan ar riy l back again Wednesday afternoon. iiE'VrATE Fair. The State Fair 1 opened lasJ Monday at Saginaw with iitueh bett-r prospects for success than ast year. The display in all departments was exceedingly fine, especially cattle. The entries were'-largely in excess of those of last year. The two days of bad weather ' decreased the pm-oss reooinu somewhat. The pomologV-al department is said to have been the best vcr seen in Michigan. ' " To be Withdrawn. The steamer Music, which has been running from Fe- toskey to Mackinaw during the season in connection with the U. II. and I. Rail road, will make her last trip Sunday. The season 13 so far advanced that the travel would not warrant the road in keeping the boat longer on the route. An Old Vessel. The schooner Iro quois, ot Detroit, which loaded here with cedar posts for Mr. Roblin this week is twenty-eight years old, and although she has been rebuilt during that time she still retains her original spars. To Look After Trespassers. Land Commissioner Clapp has appointed D. J. Evans, of Bay City, an agent to look after trespasses which are being commit ted on state flands in the northern and middle counties of the state. Organized. The school board for thi3 district held a meeting on Tuesday, and organized as follows: Moderator M. W. Home ; . Assessor, A P; Newton Drrfcetor, T. A: Pcrrin; LAKE DISASTERS. Two Propellers and a Barge Sank on Lake Michigan Thursday Night of Last Week. THE EQUINOX. - The Equinox had been chartered to tow the Mayes until the close of the sea son. Arriving off the Manitous, on this lake, on Tuesday, the Maye3 was left out side while the propeller went into the South Manitou and wooded. Coming out Tuesday night the Equinox again took up her tow, in doing which the two crafts collided, the.'nopeller having aii ugly hole stove in her port bow by the Mayes' anchor. The wind, which was northerly at this time, freshened up dur ing the night into a stiff , gale, with heavy, violent spuns at short intervals. Toward morning the gale increased in fuiy, and, as the Equinox was behaving very badly, little progress was made. The impression on the Mayes after they had been in the blow several hours was that the propeller was leaking that she had considerable water in her hold. When she rolled on cither side it took several seas to right her, and Capt. Lusk felt that he would be safer away from the Equi nox than with her. However, the two crafts continued together. The seas were long and heavy, but the gale i3 de scribed by Capt Lusk as the most severe he ever experienced. It was pitchy dark, and there were continuous peal3 and flashes of thunder a"nd lightening At about 2d -clock Friday morning, when about 10 miles off Point SaublS, the crisis came. The Equinox, which now seemed wholly unmanageable, took a sudden lurch to leeward and then to windward, and broached to. Then the first word heard from her came from the captain's voice : "Cut that line." The order was obeyed, and a moment later it was seen through the darkness that the propeller was in the trough of the seas. Laboring a few seconds, wild cries were heard, and the Equinox was engulfed. She did not pitch, but settled straight down, as near as could be made out, the waves closing over her, and all lights disappearing. On that terrible night of course no small boat could live, and not the least assist ance could be rendered from the barge, which M as hard pressed to take care of herself. Undoubtedly every soul on board Ihe propeller rjii ihil-, The Mayes out- ltvcu me sionn aim arriveu in tjtucugcron Saturday m rn'ng, bringing the first news of the terrible dL-a-ter. TIIH MEXDOTA. The propeller iVpcre arrived in Mil waukee on the 21st, and her olU. ers give a brief report of the foundering ot the steam barge Mendota. The Mendota. with the barge Morning Star, was sailing along the west shore ot Lake Michigan, Thursday morning, and at a point nearly opposite Ppint Aux IeC2 Sfcies, Iionzie county, Mich., foundered raid was soon sinking. The crew and passengers num bered 20 persons in all. The life-boat was launched, and SCVcn of the persons on board gdt into it. The rcmaiug thir teen went down with thd boat. No par ticulars of the disaster arc given. -The captain's name or the owner's name is not mentioned and it is not known where she belonged. She had on a cargo of coal, and was bound upward. The son of the owner of the boat was on board with his wife, and he managed to get into the life-boat, but his wife failed to do so, and he jumped back on the sinking boat and was drowned with her. THE BARGE EVENING STAR. A dispatch from Milwaukee of the 13th states that the crew of the barire Eve- ig Star " arrived there that evening. The barge, while in tow ol the propeller Mendota, foundered, off Big Point Au Sable, at noon Friday. The crew took the small boat and lauded at Amsterdam Saturday afternoon. The Evening Star was laden with 1,200 tons of coal for Chi cago. OTHER DISASTERS. There are other disasters reported, but none of so serious a nature as the ones above reported. It is exnected that there will be somo disasters 'resulting from the storm thi3 week, but as the winds was not as strong or as sudden in its rising, it i3 hoped nothing very seri ous will result. Perils of Conversing With a Preacher. The young men of this village must heveafter exercise a litttle caution re garding whom they are seen conversing with, or the results may prove unpleas ant.

Petoskey is somewhat agitated over the prospect of having a permanent Metho dist camp-meeting ground established near that place. Tlie G. R. and I. R. are to donate the ground for the purpose. Mr. W. G. Illnman, of the land depart ment, has been looking over the ground preparatory to selecting the site. The Petoskey Democrat says the Con vent farm at Crosse Village is really the only farm in the county that is farmed in a workmanlike manner, and is the only criterion to go by of what this country is able to produce when worked as it should be "worked. Their grain this year has been harvested in good shape, and the yield this year of the , several crops is as follows : Winter wheat, 35 1-2 bushels per acre ; spring wheat, 3G bush els, and oats 53 bushels.

He seems, however, to be improving slowly. A New Wheel. The North Star came over Monday and was hauled out for the " purpose of putting on a new wheel which she brought with her, and which it i3 calculated will greatly in crease her speed.
