MATOA ASHORE
_______
CAPT. WESTCOTT SENT A TUG AND LIGHTER TO AID HER
_______

Capt. J. W. Westcott reported to the Free Press yesterday that the steamer Matoa in rounding to about three miles below Courtwright, St. Clair river, about 10 o'clock Saturday night, ran hard aground on the Canadian shore. There was a blinding snow storm prevailing at the time, and this is the explanation for the accident. When Capt. Westcott received word of the accident, he at once dispatched the lighter Church and the tug L. D. Smith to her assistance. Work upon the stranded vessel was begun at once.

The Matoa belongs to the Minnesota Steamship Co. and was built at Cleveland, O., in 1890. She is 291 feet long, forty feet beam, and has a depth of twenty-one feet. Her rating is A1, double star.
