The Maritime History of the Great Lakes
Energy (Barge), aground, 7 Sep 1880

Full Text

The tug BRONSON's tow line broke yesterday when going through the Gallops Rapids with five barges from this city (of the M. T. Co.) in tow. The barge ENERGY, laden with corn and phosphate, drifted on a shoal. She is not leaking much. The tug CHIEFTAIN went down to her assistance from Kingston last evening. The damage to the grain may be a serious one.

      The tug BRONSON this morning succeeded in pulling off the barge ENERGY ashore near Edwardsburg. The CHIEFTAIN endeavored to get the barge off, but did not succeed. This is quite a feather in the cap of the tug owner.
