- Full Text
Oct. 15, 1880, the scow KITTIE, owned by John P. Devney, was brought into collision with an abutment of the Cleveland, Columbus, Cincinnati and Indianapolis Railway bridge and sank while in tow of Pat Smith's tug FANNY TUTHILL. Attempts were made to raise and repair the vessel, but failed, and the scow, according to Commissioner Bill, is a total loss, and a judgment was therefore granted yesterday in the United States District Court for $2,045, with interest from the time of the accident up to date. -- Cleveland Plaindealer.
