      The steamer D. R. HANNA went ashore at Detour shoal, Lake Huron, on the morning of Sept.12. She was consigned to Indiana Harbor, Ind. with a cargo of ore. The lighter NEWMAN was sent to her aid immediately and the lighter RELIANCE, which was working on the steamer LA SALLE, also aground, was sent on to the HANNA as soon as the LA SALLE was freed. The steamer was released on the morning of Sept. 16 after lightering part of her cargo. She proceeded to Indiana Harbor. After unloading the cargo she was taken to Ecorse, Mich., to the yrad of the Great Lakes Engineering Works where she was placed in drydock. She has between 50 and 60 damaged plates, her tail shaft is cracked and repairs will have to be made to stern post and rudder stock.
