NOTES


The schooner ALASKA, loaded with ore, sprung a leak and ran ashore Wednesday night at Scott's Point on the north shore of Lake Michigan between Manistique and St. Ignace and became a total loss. She was owned by Arch. Muir of this city and was built at Port Dalhousie in 1863 by the Muir Brothers for them. She was formerly the ACORN, her name being changed last year.
