BRITTAIN IN BAD SHAPE.
Reports come from Port Huron to the effect that the steamer BRITTAIN which sunk in Sarnia Bay last winter, is in bad shape, and probably will never be raised. Wreckers have been looking over the boat and say she is too full of holes to be pumped out. It is possible the government may remove the wreck.
