SUNKEN SCOW AT STRAWBERRY ISLAND.
      Craft in Pier Collision Discovered at Daylight.
Scow No. 12 of the Great lakes Dredge & Dock Co., which rammed into the intake pier early yesterday morning, ripping a hole amidships and floating half sunk down the Niagara River, was discovered yesterday morning lying at the head of Strawberry Island, partially submerged in about 18 feet of water.
      Discovery was made about noon by Capt. Louis Schaller of the excursion boat HEDGE WICKWIRE. He called up the tug INTERNATIONAL.
      Scow 12 is not an iron scow, but a wooden boat. It was reported at the time that the scow was iron. It is valued at about $10,000. Thugs from the Great lakes Dredge and Dock Co., will tow the scow into the slip today, where a diver will probably be sent down to patch the bottom before attempting to float her.
