LOSS OF A TUG
[Special Telegram to the Inter Ocean]
Toronto, Ont. Nov. 24. -- The tug COLIN MUNRO, owned by Captain Thomas Mentor, sank at her dock at Babys Point during the storm. George Johnson, the fireman, who was acting as watchman, is missing. The supposition is that he was in the cabin at the time and went down with her. Several theories are advanced as to the cause of the disaster, but nothing reliable up to the present. No insurance.
