INVESTIGATION BEGUN IN MITCHELL-CONEMAUGH CASE
An investigation was begun yesterday by Fred L. R. Pope and William Nolan, local steamboat inspectors, of the charges of intoxication against John Leitch of Marine City, Michigan, engineer of the steamer ALFRED MITCHELL, which recently ran into the steamer CONEMAUGH in Buflalo Harbor. It is alleged that Leitch was intoxicated at the time and did not heed the signals given him by the master of the MITCHELL, Capt. Paul Gutch of Cleveland. Capt. Gutch and four members of the crew were examined yesterday. The decision of the government officials will be announced in a few days..
