Description

STRANDED SCOW No. 15 IS BEING FLOATED.
Scow No. 15, owned by the Empire Engineering Corporation, which went aground near the foot of Porter Avenue in the blow that sunk the RICHARDSON last fall, has been raised up on ways and was moved by tugs about 20 feet towards the water yesterday. She still has about 40 feet to go. The other scow and a dredge, which were driven ashore at the same time, have been released, but No. 15 was too high and dry. Her owners are waiting for higher water to float her, but their operations were hastened by Commissioner Ward, who informed them the scow was in the way, as she is on the land to which the clubhouse of the Buffalo Yacht Club is being moved.
