The freighter Boston had har rudder
smashed by the storm and was thrown
0 lithe beach. Happily her crew of
j sixteen men were unharmed. Three

were driven back and barely escaped

very thorough investigation of the
matter and under the new rules which
have been put in force it will probably
Uo away with the custom.
