p.1 Sunken Steamers In River - The Ogdensburg section of the St. Lawrence offers the unique sight of two sunken steamers. One which was laden with coal lies directly between Alexandria Bay and the Boldt mansion. The coal has been pumped out and the bow projects about twenty feet out of the water. The wreck probably will be dynamited during the winter.

Near Fine View the Davie is lying in sixty feet of water with a small section of the bow showing. It carried a cargo of grain valued at $35,000, and the Calvin wreckers are now on the scene trying to raise the boat.

p.5 Not The Steamer Keywest - The report received from Cardinal, on Tuesday, that the steamer Keywest was aground above the Cardinal canal, was untrue. Instead, it was the Keystorm, and according to reports the vessel is in a very bad condition.
