FAVORITE SINKS.
The passenger steamer FAVORITE of the Electric Beach Excursion Company sank in 13 feet of water in the Niagara River, alongside the dock of the Grand Island Ferry Company on Grand island yesterday morning. The vessel is comparatively new and was built of steel. Last season she went aground in the Niagara River during a fog and about 100 of her passengers had to be transferred to the mainland. The boat was released and was in dry-dock for some time. The cause of yesterday's sinking is not known and an investigation will be made.
