Rolller says he heard that she reached

entering the harbor ran Into a rock and
was ' damaged. He did not learn the
extent of her Injuries. The Asle sailed
on October 15 for Portland. It Is sup
posed that' aba was put. In good repair
soon. i. .
cers of tbe Kurope say that nothing out
of the ordinary occurred. The ship Is
under charter to carry grain to the
United Kingdom and this time It Is the
Intention to supply her with a full load,
so that she will be able to ride the
waves without flopping over. She was
engaged early In the aeason at 26 shill

Three of the tramp steamers under

At the last accounts the steamship
Den of Cromble, which was chartered
for Portland loading a month ago, had
not left the orient, and the Labuan was
at Mojl. It was supposed that both of
them would be here in time to be fitted
out with cargoes-and sail this month. , ,
Business with the orient has fallen

thought that no additional charters will
be effected to transport foodstuffs to
