Description
Full Text

Chicago.---The schooner THOMAS HOWLAND, which arrived at South Chicago Tuesday evening, narrowly escaped foundering in the heavy blow of Monday night. She was ore-laden from Escanaba and sprung a leak while coming up Lake Michigan. The crew manned the pumps until they were exhausted, and when the vessel was abreast of Racine she had two feet of water in her hold. A signal of distress was set in the rigging and the Racine life-saving crew promptly responded and remained aboard of the vessel until she reached her destination.
