THE ROB ROY DISASTER
      [Special Telegram to the Inter Ocean]
      Frankfort, Mich., Nov. 25. -- The boat ROB ROY, which broke away from the steamer SANFORD on the night of the 23rd, was beached at Burnham's pier. The three men had a terrible experience, barely escaping with their lives, and completely exhausted. The boat and cargo are badly damaged.
