Siberia (Propeller), U115848, damaged cargo, 6 May 1884

Full Text

The SIBERIA with her cargo of damaged wheat arrived here yesterday and was immediately taken to Niagara elevator A to be unloaded. The SIBERIA took on her cargo of wheat last fall and while on her way for this port was struck by a gale off Kewenaw Pt., lost her rudder, and drifted nearly 200 miles. She finally brought up and wintered at Sault Ste. Marie. She took on 60,000 bushels of wheat at Duluth, but left 14,000 bushels at the Sault, and delivered in the elevator here 45, 473 bushels, partly damaged. There is still 600 bushels of wet wheat in the hold. The grain was consigned to Cyrus, Mark & Co., Schoelkopf & Mathews, and Campbell & Radcliffe, and was insured by Crosby & Dimick.
