The schooner HARVEY BISSELL is not in a very promising shape for wintering. She went ashore at the Straits with a cargo of soft coal. Tugs released her and towed her to St. Ignace, where she sank at the dock. She will probably remain there all winter. It will be difficult to take out her cargo, as such coal sticks together badly and forms a solid mass.
