Sault Ste. Marie. - Nov. 28. - Whaleback No. 107, carrying 95,000 bushels of wheat from Duluth to Buffalo, struck a boulder yesterday when 200 feet from the lower gate at the Soo. The blow drove a big hole in the barge and she went to the bottom immediately. Two steam pumps went to work at once, but they were unable to lower the water in the water bottom. It is thought the cargo is uninjured.
