STEAMER SINKS; CREW ESCAPE IN BOATS.
Detroit, May 18. - Pounded by a heavy sea and struggling through a 48 mile gale crossing Lake Erie yesterday, the steamer FAUSTIN became unmanageable and foundered in the Detroit River one mile east-southeast of Bar Point Lightship. The crew of seven men took to small boats, and were later picked up and taken to Amherstburg, Ont. The FAUSTIN lies in about 14 feet of water, out of the path of vessels. She is owned by John N. Mullen of Amherstburg. Storms warnings have driven many craft to shelter at Port Huron.
