p.1 Vessel Broken Up - Sarnia, Ont., Sept. 21st - Heavy seas on Lake Michigan broke up the steamer Walter L. Frost before the wrecker Manistique got to her. The Frost was driven on the south end of South Manitou Island last fall, while running for shelter. The greater part of her cargo had been already removed. The Frost belongs to the Ogdensburg line.

Charge Negligence - Oswego, N.Y., Sept. 21st - Adelbert R. Rice and Robert Maxwel of Oswego, the managers of the steamer Arundell, being sued for death of drunken passenger at Fairhaven on July 4th, 1903.



Craig's wharf: steamers Persia down this morning; Hamilton up tonight.

The schooner Acacia cleared this morning for Oswego to load soft coal for Swift & Co.

The tug Dauntless, with three grain laden barges, cleared from Richardsons' elevator for Montreal.

Swift's wharf: steamers Hamilton up last night; Rideau King from Ottawa tonight; Spartan down.

The Donnelly Wrecking and Salvage company has gone to release the steamer Howe, owned by the Great Lakes and St. Lawrence Transportation company, which ran on a shoal near Thousand Island Park, while en route to Oswego, with a cargo of pulpwood.

The Brockville Times says: The large tug Cardinal, owned by the Cardinal Starch Works, at Cardinal, went hard aground last Wednesday at midnight on the shoal just below Imperial Isle, opposite the bay. It is said that the wheelsman got confused on the lights mistaking Imperial for Cherry Island. The tug Parthia came down from Kingston, Thursday afternoon, and tried to release her, but could not and the Chieftain was sent for. Together they got her off late that night. An amusing incident in connection with the matter was the fact that after bringing the Cardinal to the Crossman dock the Chieftian went out and blundered onto the gas buoy shoal and had to be helped off in turn by the Cardinal.
