Description
Full Text

Buffalo, New York - The shipyards have much touch-and-go and collision-damage-work in hand. The Western liner COMMODORE is in drydock for the repair of damage sustained in the ice at the head of Lake Erie. Pig 134 struck the guard lock at the Sault and wet about 3,400 bushels of flaxseed. She will need one new plate. During the prevalence of a terrible current in Buffalo, the steamer GEORGE N. ORR struck the schooner PAISLEY and smashed her stern. A survey finds that she will need about $500 in repairs. A survey will be held this week on the fire damage of the steamer SUPERIOR CITY. Capt. Kelleran, who has most of this work in hand, will soon make a trip to Lorain, where he has half a dozen crippled to look after and then he goes to Duluth to assist in holding a survey on the ARTHUR ORR.
