NORTHLAND'S TRIAL TRIP A SUCCESS.
Injured In a Collision With The Schooner MAGNETIC.
The preparatory trip of the NORTHLAND, Saturday, was considered a success by both the builders and owners. The engines were not worked to their limits, only turning the twin screws at the rate ol 100 revolutions a minute. On account of the cloudy weather some trouble was experienced in adjusting the compasses.
Plans for fitting her out have been changed. The work will be done at Cleveland and not here.
The schooner Magnetic, while rounding around in the river, ran into the NORTHLAND and her cat head struck the after stanchion of the bridge on the port side of the big passenger boat, bending it badly, splintering the rail and doing some damage amidships. The schooner was in tow of the tug L. P. SMITH. The tug men claim that they could not control the schooner because the NORTHLAND was working her wheel. Damages amount to $400.
The daily service between Cleveland and Buffalo on the C. & B. line will be started next Sunday.
