Local Men Safe

The steamer Mataafa, which stranded at Twin Point Harbor Saturday when she struck the breakwater, had on board five Ludington men, whose friends and relatives were anxiously awaiting news of them, until yesterday, when Mrs. O.E. Barber received a letter from her son Byron, “one fo the five, that all in the party are safe. The letter was written from Superior Wis. The rumor that three of the crew were lost and several injured proved to be untrue, but the steamer was ruined. The boat grounded in an 80 mile gale, the worst storm ever known in that region.
