A mistake in signals caused a collision at Ashland yesterday afternoon between the propeller JAMES B. COLGATE and whaleback barge No. 131. The propeller was attempting to pick up the barge and backed into her, tearing a hole in her side and breaking the rudder of the COLGATE. Both boats have ore and temporary repairs were made so that they could go to the shipyard at Duluth, where the were towed by tugs.
