Sault Ste. Marie, April 25 - Owing to the tug strike there are no wrecking tugs to send to boats in trouble in the Soo Passage. In consequence the Steel Trust has ordered the stm. MARUBA to go to the assistance of the stm. WATT. aground in Mud Lake. The stm. ROBERT L. SHAW is also reported aground in Mud Lake, but her owners the Eddy Transportation Co. have no steamers at hand to send to her assistance. At noon the tug trust succeeded in getting the tugs BOYNTON and CHENEY into service having secured non-union firemen for them.
