While on her way from Tobermory to Kincardine with a cargo of lumber, the Canadian schooner SINGAPORE was dashed to pieces yesterday on the shore near the entrance of Kincardine Harbor. Those on the boat J.C. Sutherland, the owner, his wife, three children and crew of five men, were rescued by the life-saving crew. While on the trip the SINGAPORE became waterlogged and was drawing too much water to enter. She is a total loss and was not insured.
