p.5 Little Damage - Detroit, Sept. 18th - Underwriter's Representative Sinclair, who inspected the Canadian steamer Rosemount, after her stranding last week, twelve miles from Detour, Mich., says he considers the Rosemount the least damaged of any steel ship that ever struck the rocks as hard as she did. "The Rosemount went on in smoke, and ran three feet out, but only two rivets were pulled out and the diver reported that the indentations in her bottom were very slight." The lighter Recluse took off seven hundred tons of the Rosemount's hard coal cargo, which was reloaded at the Soo after which she proceeded to Port Arthur. An air compressor and a six inch syphon was placed on board at the Soo.
