Steamer Mills May Be Abandoned
____
Underwriters are Coming Today to Take Over the Boat
___

The crew of the steamer D.W. Mills ashore on Ford Shoal, were taken off by the Coast Guard crew yesterday afternoon and landed at Parsons' ship chandlery store where they were paid off. Two men, besides Captain Lanagan remained aboard the Mills last night, keeping up the fires.

Today the underwriters are expected here when the boat will be turned over to them by the owners. It is said that she carries an insurance of $15,000.

Measurements show that the Mills went 200 feet out on the ledge of the rock. It is going to be some job to pull her back into deep water.
