THE BARGE "MOTT" SEIZED FOR DEBT.
      The Barge J.L. MOTT was seized by the Sheriff today to satisfy a judgment of $7,045. It will be sold June 12, unless the claim is satisfied in the meantime. The MOTT is owned by M.F. BROWN and others, all of Buffalo. She is in the lumber trade and now lies laden in Buffalo. The judgment does not affect the cargo, so the MOTT will unload in the Ohio Basin.

      BARGE MOTT SOLD.
      And There May Be Trouble Over It, Too, For No Money Is Due Yet.
      The barge JOHN T. MOTT was sold at public auction by Deputy Sheriff Basler today to satisfy a judgment of $7,045. She was bought by Clarence D. Taylor, who obtained the judgment, for $600.
      During the sale Deputy Marshall Watts libeled the vessel on two claims. One is for $2,135.50, by the Michigan Wrecking and Salvage Company for services rendered when the MOTT was stranded and wrecked near Cathead Point, in Grand Traverse Bay, in Lake Michigan, on November 15, 1892, and the other for $27 for towage by LaFayette S. Sullivan and Charles Hubbard of Toledo.
      It appears that C.H, Blakeslee and M.F. Brown, the owners of the vessel, gave the Michigan Wrecking Company a note which is not due until next Monday.
