North Tonawanda, June 28 - The prop. BURHAM, which came down the Niagara River this morning with a cargo of lumber., ran aground at the head of the Tonawanda Island and is said to be leaking. This is the first trip of the BURHAM to the Tonawanda ports and the master was not familiar with the channel.
Whistles of distress were blown and the tug CONSTITUTION responded. After some tugging, Capt. Tim Hartman succeeded in releasing the freighter. The BURHAM carried lumber for the Northern Lumber Co.
