Full Text

Sault Ste. Marie. May 18. - Schooners JOSEPHINE and ALOHA collide at Lake George Flats this morning and the JOSEPHINE went to the bottom. The collision occurred very nearly where SUSAN E. PECK sank last season, completely blocking Lake Superior navigation for a week. The channer is nearly blocked and vessels must use extreme caution in passing the wreck. This is her first collision in Soo River this season.
      The schooner JOSEPHINE, which is reported sunk today in the Soo River is an old vessel, built in 1857 and owned by Toledo parties. She registers 280 tons, and is valued at about $4,000 and rates B 1, Plus.
