p.3 The Barge Wheat Bin Sinks - The barge Wheat Bin belonging to the M.T. Co. was sent to Portsmouth some days ago to be hauled out and repaired. Last evening the barge was launched as finished, but when free of the marine railway she went down until there was five feet of water in her hold. Some of the holes in her bottom had been unfortunately overlooked. The tug Thompson went to her assistance today with six pumps.
