Enterprise (Propeller), lost smokestack, 24 Oct 1887

Full Text

Port Colborne.----The steambarge ENTERPRISE with the barge ARK in tow, bound up the lake from Buffalo, had got off Erie when the gale carried away the steamer's smokestack, and being unable to keep steam up she turned back and ran for this port. In making the harbor here the steambarge was unable to keep the ARK up to the windward enough to make the piers, and was forced to cut the tow-line and let the ARK go. The steambarge got in all right but the ARK dragged her anchor and went ashore east of the piers. The crew got ashore all safe. The ARK is lying high upon the beach. She is owned by A. Muir & Bro., Port Dalhousie
