SMITH, A.F. Steam tug was in collision with steam tug A.S. PAGE, in Oswego Harbor. Property loss $650 ( for both ??)

      Collision
      The Steam tug A.F. SMITH was run into last evening by the tug A.S. PAGE, in the river just below the bridge. It appears that the PAGE was backing up and by some means run into the stern of the SMITH knocking a whole in her stern and splintering her side and railing badly. The Smith sunk stern foremost, close to the bank with her bow out of water. The PAGE was not injured by the collision- The accident could not have taken place without culpable
carelessness on somebody's part, but as there appears to be conflicting statements with regard to it, we forebear expressing any opinion as to who was the party at fault.
