      U. S. Engineer Maj. Bixby of the Detroit district has been notified by the owner of the propeller STIMSON, which was burned three weeks ago, that they have abandoned the vessel and as soon as the underwriters are heard from the wreck will be blown up. Though the owners of the sunken barge CHAMPION have not abandoned her, after 30 days she will be dynamited by the government. Both vessels are in dangerous places.
