TUG SIMS SUNK.
      The little tug IDA M. SIMS sunk up near Quayle's ship yard. She had been chartered by Captain Greenhaugh to tow rafts up the river, and while in his hands she filled with water and sunk. The cause of this is unknown, so it is reported, but it is supposed to have been caused by the tug having been idle for some time, and the upper seams became opened.
