GREAT PLACE FOR DISASTERS
The reefs rear Hyde Park have cost underwriters and vessel owners dearly. The steamer ARAGON went aground Oct. 24, 1896, in the same place, and was damaged to the extent of $9,500. The MONT EAGLE struck on Morgan's Reef in November 1894, with damage of $10,000, and the INTER OCEAN was on the rocks in 1892 for five days, costing the Underwriters $30,000.
Captain Chamberlain was in a memorable disaster. He commanded the steamer BRUNSWICK, the first ironsides of the Great Lakes, in 1880, when she collided with the CARLINGFORD in Lake Erie and sank, with a loss of four lives and a valuable cargo.
