p.3 W.R. Taylor - Western exchanges report that the tug Winslow, with the sch. W.R. Taylor, has arrived at Northport, Mich. There were 3000 bushels of grain in the vessel. One pump was keeping her free. She will be beached there for the winter. Great difficulty is experienced in obtaining coal for the steampumps. The Winslow went into several places but couldn't get any, and Captain Blackburn intimated that they might have to go to Cheboygan. The Straits are now full of ice, however, and it is doubtful if Cheboygan can be reached. Capt. "Mart" Swain, of the Winslow, is himself an A-1 wrecking master, and he and Captain "Mart' Blackburn make an excellent team. The rescue of the Taylor is certainly an additional plume in the cap of each.
