DREDGE BOUND TO DETROIT FOUNDERED ON LAKE ERIE YESTERDAY.
      HER CREW WAS SAVED.
Lorain, September 27. -- Dredge No. 4. in tow of the tugs DRAGON and PETE GORMAN, foundered in Lake Erie, off this harbor this morning. The crew consisted of Capt. A.L. Corbin and Joe Wrightman, of Detroit; Bert Munchy and Charles Sullivan of Fairport, were saved. The dredge left Fairport at 4 o'clock Wednesday afternoon, bound for Detroit. Off this port a squall was encountered, and during it the dredge sprung a leak forward and soon sank. Part of the crew took to the scows and the rest boarded the tugs. They were brought here today. Capt.. Corbin lost a check for $150 and some personal papers.
