Grounded Freighter Lightered.

The Yankcanuck freighter Mancox which ran aground in the St. Marys River yesterday, afternoon left the government dock at the foot of Pim Street at 1 p.m. today.

The ship freed itself at 9:30 a.m. after having 125 tons of her steel cargo transferred to its sister ship Manzzutti. There was no apparent damage and the Mancox was reloaded to continue its trip downriver.

The Mancox was pushed by currents onto an underground bank on the north side of the north channel opposite the Algoma Central dock.

It had just locked downbound yesterday through the Canadian lock after loading steel at the Algoma Steel dock.

The accident occurred when the freighter reversed its engines to allow passage of another ship proceeding from the CSL dock to the American canal.
