      The leak in the CITY OF PARIS was found and patched so that she can proceed to Buffalo. In coming over Grosse Point she struck what is supposed to be a bucket from some boat's wheel. It cut a hole in her bow, and the water was nearly to the top of the ore in her hold before the steam pump could be got to work.
