ALVA COLLIDED WITH TUG.
      Sault Ste. Marie, Mich., May 5. - In attempting to make Kemp's slip last night, the steamer ALVA of the Chicago & Duluth Transportation Company collided with the Great Lakes tug BOYNTON, damaging the tug's stern bearings and ripping off forty feet of her rail strake. The steamer went into the Great Lakes dock head-on, knocking out several piles and putting a hole in the planking. The accident was caused by mistaken signals, the engineer going ahead, instead of backing.
