SAULT SAINTE MARIE — With harbor ice all over the Great Lakes softening and rapidly decreasing in thickness, preparations are going forward for a comparatively early opening of navigation, some marine observers predicting that shipping may begin to move in two weeks. It was learned here yesterday that a cargo of coal has been loaded at a lower lake port for shipment to Marquette and that it will be brought here for delivery to the Duluth, South Shore, and Atlantic Railway as soon as possible. It is expected that this will be the first boat to enter the Marquette harbor this spring. A report from Sault Ste. Marie yesterday stated that the fourth lock will be filled early next week and made ready for the opening of navigation.
