STEVENSON IS ASHORE.
Crew Of Five Men Has Been Rescued -- Barge May Be Saved.
Watertown, Dec. 17. - The coal barge ISAAC STEVENSON of the Ogdensburg Coal & Towing Company, which broke from her tow in a terrific gale on Lake Ontario, 10 miles off Capt Vincent last night, after drifting all night, went ashore at Stiny Point today.
The crew of five men is safe at Henderson, and it is believed the barge may be saved.
The barge left Oswego yesterday afternoon in tow of the steamer AVON, Capt. Kish, with 230 tons of coal consigned to Brockville, Ont. When six hours out the towline broke in a gale and the AVON was unable to pick up her consort again, leaving her to the mercy of the storm.
