Marine Disasters on the Western
Lakes during 1871, Capt. J.W. Hall
DISMASTED. - As the bark FRANCIS PALMS was being towed down the creek, about noon today, stern first, the wind caught her after passing the Watson Elevator and slewed her bows around against the schooner SAM AMSDEM, which was tied up near the Lookout. The jibboom of the PALMS took the spars out of the amsden, close to the deck, as clean as if they had been cut away with an axe. The bulwarks on both sides of the AMSDEN were smashed in and the vessel otherwise badly damaged. The PALMS was not injured.
