Sacramento (Propeller), collision, 1 Nov 1903

Full Text

An examination was made yesterday of the prop. GLADSTONE which sunk in collision with the SACRAMENTO off Bar Pt. last Friday night. A hole was found ripped in her port side down near the bilge, 35 ft. long and 5 ft. wide, through which the grain cargo is running into the lake. The bulkheads between the cargo and engine room broke filling the engine room with oats and water. Steam is being kept in one boiler to keep the pipes from freezing although the water has reached one engine grate and is near the other. The decks and timbers of the GLADSTONE are greatly strained. Preparations are being made to put a temporary patch on the GLADSTONE to enable her to be lifted. She will be repaired at Detroit.
