Montezuma (Barge), U93397, aground, 1 Oct 1910

Full Text

Although the barge MONTEZUMA which went aground over a week ago in the Niagara River off the foot of Tonawanda Island has been lightered of 500 tons, the vessel has not been released this morning. Despite the lightering of the cargo and the rising water, caused by the strong southwest winds, the boat seems to be on just as hard as at any time since stranding. The stm. SHENANDOAH pulled on the MONTEZUMA yesterday. Another attempt will be made by the steamer today to get her consort afloat.
