Full Text

The wooden freighter TAMPA, owned by Henry Wineman, Jr. of Detroit, was rammed by the freighter JOHN W. GATES at the dock of the Ontario Asphalt Company above Walkerville, Mich., yesterday. The entire crew got off the boat safely. The collision is said to have been due to defective steering gear on the GATES. She was not damaged and after a brief delay, proceeded on her course. The TAMPA has traded in and out of this port for many years and made her winter quarters here for several seasons.
