THE TUG WENT DOWN.
Prescott, Ont., May 15. - The tug SHICKLUNA sank about 2 o'clock this morning while lying in Buckly's slip alongside the steamer TRANSIT. The wind blew a gale and caused a heavy sea to roll in the slip. The tug did not leak and it cannot be ascertained at present what caused her to go down. No damage has been done to the machinery.
The cook and captain's little boy had a narrow escape from drowning. The tug lies in ten feet of water, close to the dock, partly on her side.
