The small steamer IDA, 82 feet long, owned by Belknap & Phillips of St. Clair was struck by the Western Transit liner BUFFALO and sunk on the channel bank between Joe Bedore's and Trautz's in the St. Clair River. The crew assisted by throwing off stones with which she was loaded. Just as the hull was filled to sinking the bow of the IDA ran into the soft mud.
