Not Captain Saunders

Captain Joseph Saunders of Cape Vincent desired to correct a report appearing in the St. Lawrence river news some time ago to the effect that he was in charge of the steamer Olcott which ran on a shoal near Thousand Island Park. Captain Saunders states that he was up at the canal bringing a steamer to Montreal at the time. Obviously he could not have run the steamer on the shoal near Thousand Island Park. Evidently there was a mix-up in names of captains.
