DICKSON SINKS IN BLACK RIVER.
      Tears Hole In Tank -- Trying To Float Her.
      Lorain, Nov. 26. - The Pittsburg Steamship Co's steamer W. B. DICKSON, from Duluth with ore, struck an obstruction in Black River this afternoon, ripping a hole in No. 1 tank and causing her to sink in twenty-five feet of water. The DICKSON struck north of the Erie Avenue viaduct, but was towed beyond the Nickel Plate Bridge, a half-mile, before she sank. An air compressor was put to work on her and an effort was being made to float her without the aid of a lighter, tonight. The nature of the obstruction which caused the accident has not been determined. The DICKSON is commanded by Capt. Henry Middy ? of Vermillion.
