Roberval (Barge), sunk by ice, 29 Nov 1901

Full Text

Ogdensburg reports that the tug DAUNTLESS and the barge ROBERVAL sank on Thursday in the bay below Windmill Light. The barge was loaded with 22,000 bushels of wheat from the Ogdensburg elevator for Montreal. While running out through the ice in the channel the hulls of both vessels were cut through and efforts were made to back them out. They sank before reaching shallow water.
      The barge REGINA, bound up from Montreal with cement, struck a pier in the Cardinal canal and sank. A Kingston wrecking fleet has been summoned to raise the three before solid ice forms over them.
