Lower Lakes Swept by Snow and Wind
Most Severe Gale of Season prevails in Detroit District. Boats Safe.

DETROIT, Mich., Nov. 9 -- The most severe snow and wind storm of the season prevailed over this section of the great lakes today and ships of all descriptions were forced to seek shelter.

Warning of a stiff gale had been given, however, and tonight the only vessel reported in trouble in this district, was the W. G. Pollock of Cleveland. She had been forced on the bank of the St. Clair flats canal. Her condition was not regarded as dangerous.

The steamer Mary Elphicke of Chicago went ashore yesterday off Bar Point in Lake Erie, but has been released and is in shelter. The reports last night of an unidentified vessel on the rocks off Point Pelee, in Lake Erie, were not confirmed today. The tugs sent to her rescue, turned back when passing steamers notified them that they saw no vessel in distress. The wind today attained a velocity of form 46 to 48 miles an hour on shore.
