Old Steambarge Norseman Beyond Firemen's Aid

The firemen from the lower fire hall took the Chatham engine out to the Grove Inn, Tuesday morning, to pump out the old steambarge Norseman, which sank Saturday. When they arrived there, however, it was found that the vessel was too far under to hope to do anything, so it was abandoned. The water had covered the vessel completely. A wrecking company's services will be required.
