Full Text

Capt. Dunlop of the Canadian tug A.D. CROSS, which arrived here last night, reported that the tug HEWART McMAUGH, bound for Buffalo for coal, went hard on the rocks at Pt. Abino. A heavy fog was in at the time and it is said that the McMAUGH got out of her course.
The McMAUGH, it is reported, is in bad shape. Tugs have gone to her with pumps. The McMAUGH is a canal tug and is owned by Capt. McMaugh of St. Catharines.
