SANTIAGO IS LOST; HER CREW ESCAPES
_______
Ore-laden Wooden Barge Founders in Saginaw Bay

Crossing Saginaw bay, downbound, Monday night in tow of the steamer John F. Morrow, formerly the Edward N. Breitung, the wooden barge Santiago, weakened under the pounding of the heavy sea and foundered about 20 miles north of Point aux Barques. Her entire crew escaped safely and was taken aboard the Morrow.

The Santiago was loaded with ore and it is supposed some of her seams opened under the strain of buffeting the waves. The barge was built at the shipyard of Capt. James Davidson in West Bay City in 1899 and was a vessel of 2,525 net tons, 324 feet long, 45.5 feet beam and 21.5 feet deep. She was operated by J. J. Boland, Buffalo.
