George Davie In Trouble Near Alexandria Bay

Wrecking Crew From the Calvin Company Was Called To The Scene

Barge Just Left Kingston Monday Night

The barge George Davie, of the Montreal Transportation Company, grain-laden, on the way to Montreal, ran aground near Alexandria Bay Monday night.

The steamer Parthia, of the Calvin wrecking fleet, with a lighter, steam pumps and complete wrecking outfit, left for the scene. As far as can be learned the barge is not in a very dangerous position, and it is evident that she will be released with little trouble. The barge will go on the government dry-dock as soon as she is taken off. The Davie left Kingston for Montreal Monday night.
