Description
Full Text

Buffalo.---The UNITED LUMBERMAN, on her way to Tonawanda with lumber, struck bottom twice. At the red can buoy in the Emerald Channel she struck and was set leaking, and again below the water works crib she stove a hole in her port bow and began to leak. The propeller made haste and on reaching TONAWANDA was drawing fifteen feet, having settled down two feet. She was unloaded however, all right, and went into drydock.
