The Maritime History of the Great Lakes
C. F. Cort (Propeller), aground, 22 May 1897

Full Text

The stmb. C.F. CORT's ran aground on the sand bar extending from the foot of Squaw Island last Sunday evening between 6 and 7:00, and broke the natural gas pipe which crosses from Canada at that point, causing a lively eruption of gas and water for a few minutes until it was turned off on the Canadian side.
      The steamer came down the river through the bridge, and was swinging her tow into the lumber dock near Hertel Ave., but got a little too far up and out of the channel.
      Both boats were loaded with lumber.
      The CORT's was released about noon Monday by tugs. She was not damaged.
