THE J.B. KETCHAM SINKS IN THE SOO
      Word has been received from the Soo that the small steel steamer J.B. KETCHAM, owned by Lous, Sons & Co. of Au Sable, Mich., sank this morning in the Neebish Channel, just below the Soo, and that the channel is blocked. No further details are given of the accident. The boat was loaded with pulp wood, bound for Tonawanda. As no details of conditions have been reported here, local marine men are unable to estimate the time it will require to clear the channel. It is believed that traffic will be blocked from three days to a week. Down-bound vessels are directed to anchor in Hay Lake.

      Sault Ste. Marie, Mich., May 21. - The West Neebish rockcut channel opened two seasons ago, is in complete blockade, the steamer JOHN B. KETCHUM No. 2 being sunk in 50 feet of water below the old upper dam. The KETCHUM, loaded with pulp wood and bound down, struck the curb on the east side above the dam at the upper end of the starboard bow last night and sank. She lies east and west directly across the channel.
