MALIEOTA STRANDS ON ROUND ISLAND.
Sault Ste. Marie, April 21. - The long line of accidents in the Soo Passage since the opening of navigation was further added to yesterday by the stranding of the steamer MALIEOTA on Round Island. So firmly is the big boat on that the steamers BESSEMER and MARINA failed to effect her release, and she will have to be lightered. As the lighter is now being used on the stranded steamers MURPHY and DONNECONA, the MALIETOA will have to stay where she is and wait her return before being released.
