STEAMER IS IN TROUBLE ON ERIE
Ashtabula Lifesavers Unable to Overtake It - Gale is Subsiding
Latest reports indicate a subsidence of the gale on the lakes. No fatalities and no additional mishaps are chronicled, though the lifesavers at Ashtabula had a long pull yesterday, in answer to distress signals by a small steamer bound down Lake Erie.
Accompanied by the tug William D., the lifesavers made a run of ten miles out in the lake, but discovered that the steamer was leaving them behind. They gave up the chase and were brought back by the tug, soaked and quite exhausted from their long pull in the heavy sea. The identity of the steamer was not learned.
