Duluth, June 29 - The stm. W.C. RICHARDSON is unloading coal and receiving repairs to 6 broken plates at the same time. The break was caused by the stm. WOODRUFF of the Gilchrist fleet, which struck the RICHARDSON on the starboard side while running through the Soo. The WOODRUFF's stem is out of plumb, but she is not seriously damaged.
