Frank Morris (Scow), sunk by collision, 1 Oct 1883

Full Text

The scow FRANK MORRIS, Captain George McClure, has sunk near Algonac, River St. Clair. While sailing up on Thursday morning, laden with stone, the tug McCrae, with a tow of barges, attempted to cross her bows, and in so doing the barge nearest the tug collided with the MORRIS and sunk her. Captain McClure states that the tug was wholly at fault, and he has blood in his eyes with nose turned up, and as a consequence, the law will be resorted to. - Detroit Report.
