The barge SUPERIOR ran into and sunk Murphy's wrecking schooner BEN HUR, on the St. Clair River Saturday night at 7 o'clock. The BEN HUR had been engaged in wrecking the sunken boat TREMBLE and was lying alongside the wreck when she was hit. The wrecking outfit of the BEN HUR is a total loss, everything going to the bottom.
