Description
Full Text

Local marine men who have examined the barge KEWEENAW, which was run down by the stmr. NEW ORLEANS a week ago declare that the barge will be a total loss. It was predicted yesterday that she would drop apart when her lumber cargo was removed. The KEWEENAW is cut down to the turn of her bilge, on her starboard side, just abaft the foremast, and is shoved out badly to larboard. Her stern is gone and altogether she is a sorry looking wreck. She is owned by George Nester, of Barage, and was built at Marine City in 1866. Her insurance valuation is $2,500.
