      "The tug GOLDSMITH went to Summer Island on Sunday to enable the captain to make an examination of the schooner DUNCAN CITY, with a view to getting the craft afloat. The schooner went ashore on the east side of the island last spring, and although she lies in a comfortable position and has but little water below the hatches, it is questionable whether any effort will be made to get her off, this season at least, in view of the unfavorable outlook for vessel property. Should buisness improve, and that class of bottoms appreciate in value, there is no question but that the DUNCAN CITY will be rescued in good time. The vessel is owned by the captain who sailed her at the time she went ashore."
      Door City Advocate

"The schooner DUNCAN CITY, which has been on Summer Island since last fall was released by the tug MONARK last Friday. She was not much injured."
