- Full Text
The stm. L.L. BARTH, Capt. Thomas Heffernan of Tonawanda lies in 20 ft. of water off the Muskegon Harbor, Lake Michigan. The BARTH and consort HELVETIA had unloaded lumber at Tonawanda and were on their way to Chicago with coal loaded at Buffalo.
Leaking from many seasm, the BARTH, which is owned by the Hines Lumber Co., of Chicago, ran into Muskegon yesterday at full speed and as it neared the dock sank. A heavy sea is thought to have caused the leak.
The stm. cast off the HELVETIA opposite Little Point Sable and when it neared Muskegon, the captain of the vessel signalled the life-saving crew and the crew of 17 men was taken from the ship. An effort wull be made to pump the BARTH out. If efforts to raise the barge loaded fail, it will be unloaded and raised. The ore boat PENTLAND picked up the cast off scow and towed it to port.
