Full Text

The coal steamer JOHN DUNCAN, her bow stove in as the result of a collision with the Anchor liner, LEHIGH, struggled into Northport yesterday and sank in shallow water. The collision occurred off Cathead Point, at the entrance of Grand Traverse Bay, about 2:30 o'clock yesterday morning. The LEHIGH has not been seen since the collision and the extent of her injuries are not known. A later dispatch from Mackinaw City tells of the LEHIGH having passed that port apparently little the worse from the accident.
