Fears for Safety of Barge.
      Owen Sound, Ont., January 11. -- Fears are entertained for the safety of the captain and crew of the barge ISABELLA SANDS. The barge, laden with lumber from the wreck of the steamer ALASKA at Tobermory, was tied up at her dock. This morning she was missing. It is thought the captain attempted to cross the bay to a less exposed position and was blown into the lake by the storm.
