      BARGE OLGA IN DRYDOCK.
Tonawanda, Dec. 11. - The barge OLGA, which broke away from the steamer MEYERS in the storm on Lake Huron on Thursday, Nov. 30, and went ashore near Goderich, Ont., two days later, was released yesterday. Capt. Edward Prill of Tonawanda, owner of the boat, has arranged to have the vessel dry-docked at Port Huron for repairs. After repairs have been made the boat will be towed to Tonawanda. The OLGA carried 800,000 feet of lumber for White, Rider & Frost of this city, but about 300,000 feet of the cargo was lost in the storm. The OLGA will be the last boat to arrive at the Tonawandas this season with lumber.
