      MIGHT HAVE BEEN LEAKY.
      St. Catharines, Ont. July 6. - That the tug FRANK T. BARNES, which was lost with Capt. Herbert Larush of St. Catharines and its crew of five men on the morning of Tuesday, November 2, 1915, about 100 miles east of Port Dalhousie in Lake Ontario, might have been in a leaky condition when she left Toronto harbor bound for Sorel, was the only theory advanced at the investigation held in the city hall by Dominion Wreck Commissioner Demers at Toronto.
      Evidence showed that the vessel was last seen three miles southeast of Gull Pond. The body of Capt. Larush was found thirty miles from the mouth of the Niagara River.
