The Maritime History of the Great Lakes
Clarion (Propeller), U125937, leak, 1 May 1883

Full Text

The rumoured leaking of the large prop. CLARION, of the Anchor Line, while lying at Chicago grain loaded for below seems to have been true. A Port Huron Special says: "She leaked all the way here, and when here she had 9 inches of water. A large portion of her cargo of oats must be damaged." The CLARION's cargo is a large and valuable one. The night the CLARION was lying in Chicago, careened over and the siphons working, it was stated that a tug and tow passing along the harbor had collided with her, and that the leak was a result of that collision. Hull and cargo insured.
