Sandusky, September 26 - The wooden schr. CONSTITUTION, owned by Runnels & Sinclair of Port Huron, went down at the West Bay dock of the Kelley Island Lime & Transportation Co. at Kelley's Island, this morning. She had taken on a cargo of stone which proved too much for her. As she settled she almost capsized, and the crew escaped by jumping to the dock.
