      The excursion steamer CANADIANA has been cleared of blame in its collision July 30, 1958, with a railroad bridge over the Maumee River by a Common Pleas Court Jury in Toledo. Damages totaling
$4,966 were denied the Toledo Terminal Railroad which claimed the ship failed to signa1and was going too fast. Still pending is a $125,000 damage suit against the railroad which claims that the bridge was swung into the vessel after being opened for a freighter that preceded the CANADIANA.
