Wrecking the Mills
Captain Filson Says He has Received No Word of the Sale of the Steamer

Captain D. H. Filson, representing Smith Brothers, underwriters, Cleveland, O., said this morning that he has received no information concerning the sale of the steamer David W. Mills which went ashore during the dense fog that prevailed during the early morning of August 11, to Donnelly Wrecking Company of Kingston, Ont.

Mr. Filson said that the Underwriters and owners of the Mills combined were trying to secure the service of some company who could remove the boat from the shoals, but as yet were unsuccessful. Mr. Filson asked that an option has been asked and that he thought a deal would be closed this week and the work started soon.

Those who have been to the wreck recently say that the Mills is little damaged and that a couple of powerful tugs with lines long enough and strong enough would have little difficulty in pulling the steamer off the ledge of rocks at Ford Shoals into deep water.
