p.1 Rosemount On Rocks - A Detroit despatch says: The Canadian steamer Rosemount, coal-laden, for Fort William, is on the rocks about twelve miles below the Detour lighthouse. The steamer is thirteen feet out and will have to lighter part of her cargo before she can be released. She is said not to be leaking much. The accident was caused by the thick smoke from forest fires in that vicinity which covers the surface of Lake Huron. The Rosemount is one of a fleet of English-built vessels owned by the Montreal Transportation company, and is valued at $90,000.

A local fireman remarked today, that this season had been the hardest on members of his calling for years. In fact there had been a great scarcity of firemen, as many had been taken sick while at work, and several had died on the lakes. The speaker blamed the fuel for being of an inferior quality, thus causing the intense heat.
