Collision On Detroit River
Detroit, May 30th - About midnight last night the steamer City of Mackinac collided with the tug Washburn in the river opposite this city, resulting in the drowning of John Hurley and Chief Engineer Robinson of the steam barge Majestic, who were on board the tug. The tug was nearly cut in two, but the engineer beached it on the Canadian shore before it sank, thus saving the lives of the four other men on board. The Mackinac was but slightly damaged.
