p.2 The str. Ranger came into port yesterday morning and reported the prop Banshee lost during the night close to Timber Island, while on her way down the lake with a cargo of wheat. From what we learn, the machinery of the Banshee became disabled, and she became unmanageable in the heavy seas produced by a violent gale, and either sprang a leak or swamped. The vessel lies in 18' of water, in a good position to be raised. The crew got safely ashore in the boats to Timber Island, except one man, a passenger, who was drowned, but whose name was not given. The Banshee was a vessel of small tonnage, and was owned in St. Thomas.
