JW writes that the J. G. BLAINE docks at the Elizabeth Marine Ways during June 1900.  He does not give the exact date but it probably was after she sank at Monessen, PA on June 28 as she was then taken to Elizabeth, PA for repairs. The photo above, copied from an old newspaper, shows the JAMES G. BLAINE at the EMW for these repairs.
