THE JOHNSON MAY BE BLOWN UP
_______
Her Owners May Stand the Loss on Boat and Cargo

Amherstberg, October 17. – The City of Venice, bound down, has been on Bar Point since yesterday, and will wait for the water to come up. It is about ten inches lower than usual, owing to the stiff northwest gale. Charles Holland, of Marine City, owner of the sunken schooner C. N. Johnson, has arranged for a sandsucker to pump the hard coal out of her hold. If the boat is then not worth raising he will blow the wreck up, as an obstruction to navigation. The total loss will fall on the owners of the vessel, as they carried their own insurance and also assumed the risk on the cargo.
