The Costa Rica, scheduled to sail for
San Francisco this morning, will carry
1.103 barrels of flour. So the grain and
flour shipments to coastwise points bid
fair to be heavy this month. Had not
all of her space been held for general
merchandise, the F. A. Kilburn would
have taken out a large consignment of
wheat. Among other shipments going
out on the Costa Rica will be 1600 sack ,
of bran. Hei entire cargo will measure j
cloe to 1200 tons. The work of dis
charging and loading the steamer ha
been pushed to completion just as quick
ly as possible in order to get the best
service out of her that is possible. Ship
pers are clamoring for space on all of
the vessels two weeks in advance of
their sailing dates.
