The schooner YUKON, which got aground at Grosse Point last Saturday, had another accident before daylight this morning while off Point Abino. The YUKON was in tow of the half and half steamer YUMA. The steamer struck ice enough to stop her short and the YUKON, a big vessel, of 1,522 tons net register, closed down and struck her a hard blow astern. The YUKON stern was badly smashed and the YUMA suffered considerable damage, but just what the extent of her injuries was could not be ascertained as she dropped the YUKON outside the breakwater and left for Erie.
