p.4 The Myra - Mr. Peter Campbell, wheelsman of the Myra, was in town today, and was seen by a News representative. He says that the Rothesay is altogether to blame, as the tow was on the right side, and the larger boat would not give way. The Myra whistled twice, and Capt. Martin shouted several times, but no notice was taken. After the shock Mr. Campbell was thrown overboard, but held on to the hand-rail and was thrown back again by the wash. All those on board the Myra lost their clothes and other effects.
