Captain Larsen and the life-saving crew from Evanston rescued her captain and crew Thursday morning. Dunham's Towing and Wrecking Co. having been working on her, considerable coal was pumped out of her and brought into port by the scow MOSES GAGE, which returned to her to receive more of her cargo and Tuesday morning she was reported afloat and is expected in port soon. The HALSTED is owned by John G.Keith, was built at Sturgeon Bay, Wis., and measures 472 tons.
