Marine Disasters on the Western
Lakes during 1871, Capt. J.W. Hall
. . . . .
We are informed that the prop. DICTATOR was sunk by the prop. JAY GOULD running into her while she was lying at the dock of one of the Manitous last Sunday morning. The force of the collision was such as to send the bow of the DICTATOR out of the water, where it rests high and dry. She had 17,000 bu. barley in hold and like the GOULD was bound eastward. No explaination of this singular disaster has yet come to hand. It is probable that the engine of the GOULD stopped on the dead center while she was nearing the dock. The latter boat called here yesterday and was to all appearances unharmed.
