Full Text

As the result of a collision with the Western Transit Company's steamer VANDERBILT, the steamer WHITE STAR, owned by A. B. Slyfield of Port Huron, is sunk in the St. Clair River just above Star Island. The collision occurred about 10:30 o'clock Thursday night and was probably due to a misunderstanding of signals. The WHITE STAR was built as a canal boat in 1874 and was recently transformed into a steamer. She is 136 x 27 x 12. The WHITE STAR was upbound light and towing the schooner EVA S. ROBINSON to port Huron.
