p.1 Gananoque, May 26th - Capt. George Hammond's popular steamer Stranger, of Kingston, which has during the season been doing a good business with passengers and freight between Gananoque and the Limestone City, met with a mishap on Monday evening, about dusk, on her return with full limit of passengers from Kingston's Victoria day celebration. She ran full length on a shoal near the head of St. John's Island, rendering it necessary to send a boat ashore to telephone for the Wolfe Islander to come down from Kingston to pull her off. This was successfully accomplished after three hours delay, Gananoque being finally reached at 11:45 p.m. No material damage was, however, done to the boat....
