Snow Hinders Lake Traffic

SPECIAL TO THE PLAIN DEALER

FT. WILLIAM, Nov. 7.-- So dense was the snow storm this evening that the captain of the C. P. R. steamer Manitoba was unable to make out the buyoys at the entrance of the harbor and the boat was towed in by a tug. The Northern Navigation steamer Saronic, bound down, got as far as Thunder Cape but on account of the snow did not attempt the passage island channel and returned to port for the night.

Wireless reports say the Alberta of the C.P.R. fleet is sheltered behind White Fish. The storm which sprang up about 4:00 this afternoon was general over Lake Superior. The wind has abated considerably but the temperature is below freezing.

Storm Warnings Are Raised
