Nyanza (Propeller), U130462, aground, 25 Jun 1900
- Full Text
The stm. NYANZA which stranded on Pt. Abino in a heavy fog on Saturday (6/23) morning, was released yesterday morning. The wrecking company removed a lot of her ore cargo before she could be got off. The NYANZA came into port yesterday afternoon and her cargo will be taken off at the Minnesota ore dock. It could not be learned definately whether she was seriously damaged. It is probable that her bottom is damaged somewhat, as she rested on the rocks.
