STORM DRIVES BOAT ASHORE AT HARBOR'S MOUTH.
One of the first autumn storms of the year struck Buffalo a few minutes before midnight bringing with it a heavy rain lasted for hours.
      No serious damage is reported, but for a while the 40-mile wind gave ships on Lake Erie a merry time. The SINALOA of the Tomlinson fleet was just entering the inner harbor near the life-saving station when the storm struck her. In the darkness she was driven ashore, and now partly obstructs the channel. An effort is being made this morning to get her off. Marine men say that it is unlikely that the SINALOA is damaged to any extent as she is on a sand bottom.
      The grounding of the SINALOA with her cargo of wheat is taken by vessel owners as an example of the constant danger which the sand bar forming between the inner and outer harbor affords.
