100 years ago: June 16, 1911


Steamer Could Not Reach Labrador on Account of the Ice.

Canadian Press Despatch
St. John's, Nfld., June 16. — Prevented by ice from reaching the northern part of Labrador with provisions and other relief stores, the steamer Boethic, which is in the Labrador mail service, has returned to this port. The steamer put in at ports along the southern coast, but found no section requiring relief. In the spring there were reports that in some parts of Labrador the inhabitants were threatened with starvation.
