p.4 Loss Of The Huron - Buffalo, July 8th - The steambarge Lothair arrived Sunday, having on board the crew of the schooner Huron. The Lothair and Huron loaded baryta ore at Port Arthur for Buffalo. This is a heavy white mineral used for making paint. Saturday in a brisk northwest wind on Lake Erie the Huron began leaking. Both pumps were worked, but the leak kept gaining. When it was seen that she would sink, the crew, including a woman cook and the captain's niece, took to the yawl and were picked up by the Lothair. The Huron went down in midlake abreast of Ashtabula. She was built at South Bay in 1874, and was owned by Thompson, Nuttson & Pooley, of Windsor, who have about $4,500 insurance on the hull.
