      INSPECTORS SUSPEND TWO MATES 30 DAYS.
      Toledo, O., Aug. 19. - Licenses of Frank H. Ernest of Buffalo and Hans Rolfson of Wyandotte, first mates respectively on the steamers SYRACUSE and A. L. HOPKINS, have been suspended for 30 days by Steamboat Inspectors Potter and Pleitz of this city, as a result of the collision of the freighters between the Southeast Shoal and the Middle Grounds in Lake Erie on June 9.
      The Inspectors charge in their report that both vessels were carelessly navigated. Although signals were exchanged by the vessels when two miles apart, each failed to turn out of its path, and the collision was the result.
