It appears to be the turn of the ALBANY for an apology. On the down trip the JEWETT had to give up the race which the two were having by a mishap to her machinery, and the ALBANY passed her. On Saturday morning the ALBANY left Buffalo at 7:30 and the JEWETT 50 minutes later. Off Pt. Abino the ALBANY was seen to stop and it was thought that she was waiting for her rival, but it is now reported that she picked up a log with her wheel and was trying to get rid of it. From the Detroit passage report it appears that the JEWETT was nearly 3 hours ahead there, making the run inside 18 hours.
