Full Text

Detroit, Aug. 9. - The steambarge MYRTLE M. ROSE, of Mt. Clemens, sank at the dock at Windsor tonight, where she was discharging a cargo of coal. Eight people were asleep on the barge when it was discovered that she was sinking, and they had just time to gather together a few belongings and escape with their lives. It is thought to have been caused by someone leaving the sea cocks open.
