STEAMER SINKS; CREW HAS NARROW ESCAPE.
New Liskeard, Ont., May 12. -- The steamer GEISHA sank at her dock at Halleybury, Lake Temiskaming, Thursday night. She carried a heavy load of supplies for the miners and was tied improperly which caused her to turn over until portholes were under water. Four members of the crew sleeping on board had narrow escapes.
