What ship sank in 1903 in Quebec after passengers were off, but their property wasn't?

One of the stories that my Grandmother told me was that my Grandfather's family immigrated to Quebec from Europe in 1903. She said that after they were off the ship, it sank and they lost all of their belongings. They had been living in Algeria where my Great Grandfather worked in the Export business. My Great Grandfather's name was William Julius Schmidtmuller.
I would appreciate any information on this sailing. I assume it was in the Summer months since Quebec was closed due to weather the rest of the year.
