DENSE FOG ON LAKES CAUSED MANY ACCIDENTS.
      A number of accidents have been reported as a result of the fog which hung over the lakes on Saturday and Sunday. The nearest to Buffalo was the grounding of the steamer ROSEMOUNT and barge HAMILTON, which went aground on the north shore of Lake Erie about nine miles west of Port Colborne, early Sunday morning. Both boats were loaded with coal, and five tugs worked all day before they were released.
