North Tonawanda, May 20 - William Anderson of Detroit, a diver, made an
examaination of the hull of the burned stm. EMBURY which lies in Niagara
River abreast of Electric Park today, preparatory to removing it, according
to government orders. The machinery was taken out last year.

      North Tonawanda, June 28 - Much complaint is heard among marine men
here owing to the manner in which the government is now removing the hull of
the old stm. EMBURY from the Niagara River.
      The wreck was disturbed a few weeks ago from its resting place on the
beach of Grand Island by a gang of wreckers who took out the machinery,
dynamited the hull and left the pieces laying around.
      The result is that portions are floating into the river channel. Four
vessels have already struck, with damage, and suits will probably result. A
high wind will raise the water and make the whole outfit a menace to
