      Manitowoc, Wis., Sept. 17. - The schooner JAMES H. HALL, one of the oldest sailing vessels on the lakes, built here in 1885, met her end last week in the graveyard of lake Michigan, off Twin River Point, Two Rivers. The boat is a complete wreck. The vessel is owned by S. H. Neumann of Algoma, who commanded the craft.
The HALL was built here by Samual Hall of this city, and has been in continuous service since 1885. She was 100 tons gross and had a twenty two foot beam. The boat went on the beach in a heavy fog, and efforts of the tug ARCTIC and the Two Rivers coastguard to pull her off were in vain. The side of the vessel is stove in. The crew were taken off in a yawl boat late at night. The HALL was enroute to Two Rivers with a cargo of ninety cords of wood.
