TWO STEAMERS BEACHED ON ST. CLAIR FLATS.
Detroit, Mich., Oct. 12. - The steel steamers JAMES K. REED of Duluth and MARTIN MULLEN, of Cleveland, collided early today near Joe Bederes Landing, at the St. Clair Flats. Both vessels were beached to prevent sinking, as their bows were badly damaged. The crews were just changing watches and this fact undoubtedly prevented the injury of many men, as the forecastles of both boats were smashed.
