One of them, the Indiana Harbor, the first to arrive this morning around 6 am, will be able to leave today, the rest, in order of expected arrival, the Algosoo, Paul R. Tregurtha and the Canadian Enterprise, will be departing with their coal on Sunday. Two Great Lakes Fleet boats, the Philip R. Clarke and the Arthur M. Anderson will be bringing limestone into port.
