Three hundred passengers of the steamer

aground on embankment off Hydo park,
seven miles north of here. Most of them

thirty feet up the river bank, almost to

as to be In no dunger of sinking, and it
was decided to wait foe assistance.
In response to tho vessel's whistles of

of the bureau, that certain rjroductn 1.
