The Maritime History of the Great Lakes
Carbonate (Barge), sunk, 11 Jan 1905

Full Text

The wreck of the barge MASSASOIT has now been practically cleared from the intake pipe, the well of the pumping station are clear of slush ice and the officials of the Bureau of Water say the danger of a water famine is at an end.
The barge CARBONATE, which was used by the wreckers dynamiting the stranded barge MASSASOIT at the intake pier, sank yesterday while moored alongside one of the docks below Ferry Street. It is believed the force of the explosions under the MASSASOIT opened the vessel's seams. ---- p. 4, c. 3

The barge CARBONATE is expected to be floated and towed to the Buffalo Drydock Company for repairs today or tomorrow. She sank at the Intake Pier in an attempt to release the MASSASOIT.
