Maxon (Tug), U120182, collision, 1 Aug 1875
- Full Text
The tugs STARKE BROTHERS and MAXON of Milwaukee, in making a race to secure the tow of the schooner ARDENT, arrived in bay lumber laden, came in collision when the MAXON was forced into the ARDENT, damaging her so badly that she sank to the decks immediately, and she was brought hastily into port water-logged. The tugs are of rival companies, and the disaster will be investigated.
