- Full Text
Capt. C. J. Ennes of the steamer LANSING, which arrived today, reports passing through considerable wreckage in the middle of Lake Erie. Window sashes, stairways and a compass box were among the objects noted. Vesselmen here think the wreckage is from the barge SUNSHINE of the PRINGLE tow, which was waterlogged during the gale.
Detroit, Nov. 3. -- The barge SUNSHINE of the PRINGLE tow is given up by the underwriters to be a total loss. Only her deckload of lumber prevented her from breaking up during the gale. She was insured with Smith, Davis & Co. for 4,000.
