      LIGHTERED AND RAISED.
      North Tonawanda, Aug. 21. - The barge ALOHA, which sank in the Little Detroit passage in Georgian Bay Saturday while on its way to the local port with lumber for the Haines Lumber Co., will be lightered and raised in an attempt to repair the boat temporarily so that the rest of the cargo can be brought down the lakes. The ALOHA sank after a collision with rocks. She was in tow of the steamer UNITED LUMBERMAN.

      BARGE ALOHA RELEASED AFTER GOING ON TO ROCKS.
      North Tonawanda, August 28. - The Haines Lumber Company is in receipt of news from Spanish Mills, Ont., that the barge ALOHA, which went on the rocks while passing through the Little Detroit channel near that port in tow of the steamer UNITED LUMBERMAN, carrying stock for the lumber company, has been released and towed into Spanish Mills. The release of the vessel was accomplished after a diver made temporary repairs to its crushed bow. The deck load of lumber was also removed before the boat was pulled from the rocks.
      The ALOHA will remain at Spanish Mills until the LUMBERMAN, which is now loading lumber at Midland, Ont., comes down the lakes again. It is expected that the ALOHA will be able to come down in tow of the steamer without further repairs or the lightering of any more of its cargo.
