SANDSUCKER SENT TO BOTTOM
_______
In Thirty Feet of Water off Joe Bedore's
_______
CREW'S NARROW ESCAPE
_______

The steam sandsucker BURROWS ws run down in the St. Clair river yesterday morning by a steamer supposed to be the C. F. BIEHLMAN and now lies in 30 feet of water near Joe Bedore's dock. The BURROWS was struck on the port side and the stem of the colliding steamer plowed into the room where the wife of Captain Daniel Allen had been sleeping byt a few moments before.

An attempt was made to beach the sinking vessel on the Canadian shore but the boat sheered off from the steep bank and full speed was made for the American side. The craft struck bottom a short distance from the resort pier and Mrs. Allen and her 9-year-old son were landed safely.

The BURROWS soon filled and rolled off the bank into deep water and the crew just had time to escape in a small boat. The BURROWS is owned by C. W. Caldwell, of Windsor, and is valued at $4,000. The colliding steamer did not stop after the accident.
