The stm. AMES, which was ashore at Salmon Pt. , was released by the Donnelly Wrecking Co. on Wednesday and proceeded to the Montreal Transportation Co. 's elevator at Kingston. She carried grain from Fort William to Montreal, but will unload there instead. It is not known what damages the AMES suffered to her hull. Some of her tanks are leaking. Owing to the fact that the Kingston drydock is engaged, the AMES will have to go to an American drydock. It is not thought that any of the grain cargo is damaged.
The stranded steamer would have been released on Sunday, but the storm prevented the Donnelly outfit from working. The lighter GRANTHAM broke away from the stranded vessel and went ashore. her hull is a total wreck, but it is hoped to save some of the machinery she carries.
