Steamer Peavey Caught on Drawbridge; Delays Owana Again

Steamer Owana, of the White Star line fleet, missed her second trip Sunday at Toledo for Detroit, as the result of the blocking of the channel at the Pennsylvania Railroad drawbridge by the steamer George Peavey, of the Tomlinson fleet.

The Peavey sheered on the way from Toledo Sunday morning, just as she was about to pass through the draw of the bridge, four miles above the mouth of the Maumee river.

The channel at that point is very narrow, and the steamer was caught against the abutment in such a way as not to be easily removed. In her location other vessel could not pass.

Great Lakes tug Abner C. Harding and lighter Rescue are working on the steamer, but at 6 o'clock Sunday evening, had not yet released her.
