Detroit, Sept. 14 - The stm. DAVID W. RUST, towing the schr. C.C. BARNES, both laden with ore, went aground off Point Pelee in Lake Erie last night during a blow.
      When the steamer went aground the BARNES bore down on her and struck the RUST in the stern, tearing it open. The RUST settled to the bottom, while the BARNES stem was badly twisted and crushed by the collision.
      The RUST is a wooden boat, owned by L.S. Sullivan of Toledo. Her crew was taken off.
