A telegram from the Sault states that the prop. JAY GOULD broke her wheel Tuesday morning after leaving the river. It will cost $600 to repair the damage. The GOULD proceeded to Marquette without assistance.

      The JAY GOULD broke her wheel en route to Lake Superior. Her captain says that he requested the officials in charge of the Sault Ste Marie Canal to empty one of the locks so he could fix the wheel and make it serviceable. This was done for him, but before they would float the GOULD again they demanded $100, and it had to be paid. The owners of the vessel intend to write the government about the matter to determine whether or not the charge is a legal one. The canal is controlled by the government.
