FIREMAN ON BARGE DROWNED
The big freighter, S.S. CURRY, north bound, struck the steam barge BOTHNIA, south bound, this morning about 11 o'clock at the Flats and the BOTHNIA sunk immediately, carrying down with her Fireman Roy Williams, said to have resided in Port Huron or Sarnia. The BOTHNIA lies just a little north of the Star Island house and just outside of the channel. The BOTHNIA was endeavoring to get out of the way of the CURRY and the D. and C. steamer at the time. After the collision the CURRY rounded to and rendered every assistance possible to the BOTHNIA's crew. The Reid Wrecking Co. has been called to the scene. The name of Roy Williams does not appear in the Port Huron city directory.
