Barge Sherman Towed To Port
Boat Wrecked in Gale on Lake Ontario Arrives in Oswego.

Oswego, Oct. 14, - The barge Sherman that was wrecked and beached on the southern shore of Lake Ontario near Sodus during the heavy gale of a week ago arrived in port tonight. She was in tow of the tugboat Proctor and the steam barge John Rugee, and was leaking badly when she rounded the harbor into port.

The Allen Wrecking Company of Oswego that has been on the scene for a week took advantage of the weather today and started down the lake with two big steam pumps working. When the damaged boat arrived in port it was found that she could not get into Goble's drydock, the only available place to repair her in Oswego, on account of the death of George Goble.

It will be necessary to keep the pumps going night and day until the shipyard starts up again, which will probably be about Thursday. She will winter here and leave for Ogdensburg in the spring.
