Twillingate Sun

August 2, 1890

Fishery News

"Two or three fishing craft were seen passing South on Thursday, being very deep in the water and apparently well fished. Bait has been very scarce all the week, but in a few instances where a little was procured, fair fishing was done."

Steamer Movements

"The coastal steamer Volunteer, Capt. DELANEY, arrived from St. John's last Saturday morning, en route for Red Bay and intermediate ports. She had about eighty passengers leaving St. John's, many of them intending to make a tour round the Island, the steamer intending to return to the City via the West Coast. The Conscript took a quantity of salmon on board, while in port on Thursday, which in addition to what has been taken in other ports North, made a full cargo. The discharging of this will cause a little delay, and as the steamer will not get back to St. John's until sometime today, it is thought that she will not be able to leave on Tuesday for the North."

Fishery News

"The coastal steamer Conscript, Capt. WALSH, called here on Thursday forenoon, going South, having connected with the Labrador mail at Red Bay. The news of the fishery on the Coast for so early a date, is somewhat encouraging. In the Straits and on the upper part of the shore, fair work was done in many of the harbors, but it was rather early to expect much from the more Northern part of the Coast. It is to be hoped that the next steamer will bring more cheering intelligence from all along the Coast."

Flower Service

"The Flower Service will be held on the first fine Sunday afternoon in August. The sermon will be preached by the Rev. A.A. BRYANT, (Curate), and the service will begin at three o' clock. A procession will be formed, from the Church to the Cemetery, where a memorial address will be given by the Rev. R. TEMPLE, (Incumbent), and a new Hymn sung, composed for the occasion. Copies of the Hymn will be distributed and afterwards laid on the graves. All who desire to do so, may also decorate the graves in the old Churchyard, but, as there have been no late interments there, the service will be confined to the Cemetery."

First Fish to Market

"The credit and honor of being the first to send a cargo of new fish to market, belongs this season, to James MURRAY Esq., the popular member for Burgeo and LaPoile. The Consuelo, laden by him with a full cargo of the country's prime cured staple, left this morning for Oporto. We trust she will make a good market. - Evening Telegram, July 10."
