ROSEMOUNT IS ON THE ROCKS NEAR DETOUR.
Detour, Mich., Sept. 12. -- The Canadian steamer ROSEMOUNT, coal laden for Fort William, is on the rocks about twelve miles below the Detour light-house. The steamer is three feet out and will have to lighten part of its cargo before it can be released. It is not leaking much yet. The accident was caused by the thick smoke from forest fires in this vicinity which covers the surface of lake Huron. The rosemount is one of the fleet of English built vessels, owned by the Montreal Transit Company, and is valued at $90,000.
