Full Text

The 410 foot freight steamer SENATOR was beached today on the upper end of the Middle Ground, in the St. Marys River, opposite Detour, as the result of a collision with the steamer NORMAN B. REAM of Cleveland. The SENATOR had a large hole stove in her starboard side abreast of the engine room and there was barely time to run her on the middle ground before she filled with water. No one was injured. The REAM is still seaworthy. Both vessels were downward bound with cargoes of iron ore.
