The propeller China ran aground in a fog at the Indiana Church on Walpole Island, St. Clair River. The propeller AVON attempted to pull her off, parting all her lines. The propeller SCOTIA took eighty tons of freight off and then pulled without success. She landed the freight here. The CHINA is on but three feet forward and one foot aft. The tug LIVINGSTON has been sent from Detroit with a hawser to her assistance.
