Barge Released From Lonely Island
The steam barge J.H. SCOTT, which went ashore on Lonely Island off the east shore of Manitoulin Island was released by the tug HARRISON of Owen Sound on Monday evening. The barge was aground nearly a week. The tug Harrison made an unsuccessful attempt to pull her off last week but went back again on Monday and pulled the vessel off in a short time. The SCOTT which was in charge of Capt. M. Macdonald was uninjured as a result of the accident, and
continued her trip up the Lakes.

Could find no such vessel, Suggest this was a stranding of the Thomas R. SCOTT, which was totally lost off Cabot Head about Sept. 1, 1914 also commanded by a Capt. M. Macdonald ???????
