SUING FOR DAMAGES TO BARGE DONALDSON.
      While the steamer NORSEMAN lay at Tonawanda this morning Deputy United States Marshal Doty boarded her and served upon her skipper papers in an action for $1,200 damages brought by Capt. J. N. Karr, owner and master of the barge DONALDSON. As set forth in the papers the NORSEMAN agreed to tow the DONALDSON from Parry Sound to North Tonawanda, the latter ship being without motive power. Entering the Niagara River Sept. 1 the NORSEMAN's master swung his ship to the westward of the channel running the DONALDSON aground on a rock bottom, with the result that she was badly damaged.
