p.1 Seized A Cargo - Detroit, Feb. 24th - Because the Sarnia Reed (Reid ?) Wrecking company's Canadian tug Ottawa carried 45,000 feet of lumber from Munising to Marine City, last November, the United States marshal has seized the cargo on a libel for forfeiture. It is claimed that the navigation laws were violated, in that the tug received the lumber in an American port and transported it to an American port. The cargo was first taken to Sarnia where it was re-laden and shipped for the purpose of evading the law, says the libel. The cargo represents part of the cargo of one of the barges wrecked near Munising last fall.
