NOTE: both casualties appear to be rather mixed up ??
Muskegon, Mich., Nov., 15 -- The small schooner TRIO, which left Milwaukee for Muskegon Wednesday night, arrived this morning, and while attempting to make the harbor went high on the beach south of south pier. The life-saving crew saved the men on the vessel.
At 4 o'clock this afternoon the schooner CONNIE NELSON, bound from Manitowoc for Ludington with a load of hay and grain, had a hard time of it. She drifted out of L'Anse and appeared off here today, and on trying to make the harbor followed the TRIO and went on the beach. The life-saving crew did gallant work in saving the men on board. Both vessels are high up and safe at present.
