Capt. John J. Boland and Charles Keenan as owners of the lumber schr. MASSASOIT, wrecked late last fall on the waterworks intake in Niagara River, and as trustees of the owner of the vessel's cargo, have filed a libel against the prop. OCEANICA for $25,000 damages for the loss of the boat and cargo. The MASSASOIT was in tow of the OCEANICA when she went on the pier. The libelants claim that the MASSASIOT was wrecked because of mismanagement of the pilot and crew of the OCEANICA.
