Three barges of the Montreal Transportation Company broke away from the tug Bronson coming up the river Sunday night, and ran aground. The accident occurred near Nelville's Howe Island. The tug Thompson went to the scene today.

The steamer Hinckley came up the river on Monday morning, and the crew report a very rough passage.

The steamer Navajo came up the river Sunday afternoon but on reaching Point Frederick, found the weather so rough that she was forced to take shelter at Howe Island.

Steamer Keystorm Ashore

Ran Aground When Loaded Near Coteau Sunday Night

Word was received in the city Monday afternoon that the steamer Keystorm went ashore Sunday night near Coteau. She was loaded with grain from Port Colborne to Montreal and struck hard. The terrible wind blowing at the time drove her out of her course and in the darkness she lost her bearings. Tugs were sent out from Montreal to lighter her and she will be taken down there after being released.
