British Whig (Kingston, ON), 7 Nov 1911
p.2 Norseman Sinks Again – The barge Norseman was sunk at the water works wharf on Monday night. The wind was blowing very hard and it is altogether likely that she sprang a leak. A short time ago she sank but was raised.

 

Last week the steamer NORTH KING (formerly the NORSEMAN) and MAYNARD had a slight collision on the river. The officers of the MAYNARD claim that the KING’s officers took no notice of the MAYNARD’s whistles while the NORTH KING officials maintain that no whistles were blown and that the accident was not due to any negligence on their part but solely to the fact that the MAYNARD having approached too close to the larger vessel was sucked into her wake and bumped. The damage done was slight.
