NARROW ESCAPE OF THE CREW OF THE TUG GRACE DANFORTH.
The tug GRACE DANFORTH which sank last night in Niagara River is pretty badly used up. After she filled and sank the current was so strong that it rolled her over and over on the bottom of the river. Her house was smashed all to pieces, and her boiler was rolled out into the river. The DANFORTH is now on the bottom near the foot of Ferry Street. She is valued at $12,000, and not insured.
