Description
Full Text

The old schooner NIAGARA, once a familiar visitor to Buffalo, sank yesterday afternoon off Windmill Point. The NIAGARA was in tow of two tugs who were trying to take her to Point Abino to serve as a base for a new dock there. She was too old and her timbers a trifle too much worn, however, and before the tugs were able to get beyond Windmill Point she sank in 25 feet of water.
