Trilby (Steam yacht), sunk, 12 Nov 1897

YACHT TRILBY SANK
The steam yacht TRILBY, owned by Connelly Bros., ship chandlers, lies at the bottom of the Blackwell Canal, not far from Peck slip. The TRILBY is largely used as a supply tender and was steaming along with a load of potatoes when the tug STEVENSON passed, going at a fair gait. The swell from the tug filled the TRILBY and she sank instantly, throwing the four aboard of her into the water. All were swimmers and reached shore safely.
The TRILBY is the yacht hired by Harbormaster Soaper as a ferryboat during the construction of the Michigan street bridge, and which capsized last spring, when about a dozen Polish laborers were on board.
