Business & Professional Notices from 1893

The firm of A.J. VanBlarcom, at Newton, has dissolved partnership. Wm. D. Ackerson will continue the business. (Middletown Daily Times, August 3, 1893)

W.E. Newsom, owner of the steamer Iralda, has drawn his boat off the Portland-Oak Point route, and will soon put her on the run to Astoria in opposition to the Telephone. The Iralda will be braced up and be ballasted with fresh-water tanks to hold her steady in the water and obviate the necessity of cleaning boiler so often as they would be obliged to do if the pumps were used in the lower river. The steamer Carrie F. will be put on the Oak Point Clatskanie route in opposition to the Sarah Dixon, and connect with the Iralda at the former place. The Iralda’s time schedule has not been announced but it is understood that she will start from Portland in the morning and make the round trip to Astoria the same day, returning to Portland at about 10:00 o’clock P.M. (St. Helens Mist, November 17, 1893)
