Wreck at Tashmoo

Two freight steamers, the LINDEN and CITY OF ROME, were sunk in a collision off Tashmoo Park at 4 o’clock Friday morning, and the steward and his wife, of the former vessel, were drowned. The CITY OF ROME, which was bound down with a cargo of ore, went down immediately after the collision, about 50 feet from the Tashmoo Park dock, and the LINDEN, which was bound up with a coal cargo, kept on her way up to Russell island, where she went down in the middle of the channel. The crews of both boats succeeded in getting away in their yawls, with the exception of the LINDEN’s cook and his wife, who are reported missing. The accident was caused by the suction of a big propeller bound up which made the LINDEN veer around and crash into the CITY OF ROME. A large hole was torn into the bows of both steamers.
