Full Text

At an early hour Monday morning a large Lower Lake propeller was seen outside at anchor flying signals of distress. Her signals were seen and answered by the life-saving crew, who immediately went to her assistance. The propeller proved to be the ANNIE YOUNG, of the Anchor Line, bound from Chicago to Buffalo with a large cargo of merchandise and flour. Her engine was completely disabled. While off Middle Island ,Friday night her machinery was disabled and she was delayed until temporary repairs could be made. Sunday night a flange of her feed pipe was broken, which again caused her machinery to cease working, and as a heavy wind was blowing she ecperienced a rough time. She remained here all day making repairs - Sand Beach Report.
