Sault Ste. Marie, Ont., Nov. 6th - The steamer Wexford, down bound, and loaded with grain, struck the south pier on making the entrance to the Canadian canal, near the same place as the Lyman G. Smith did some time ago. She has a hole in her starboard side about a foot wide and six feet long above the water line. Temporary repairs are being made and the boat may get away today. Captain Sinclair, underwriters' representative, left Detroit last night for here. The Wexford is a new boat in the trade and is managed by J. Bassett, Collingwood. Part of her cargo is being lightered.
