Full Text

The 3-masted schooner reported ashore at Hammond Bay, near Cheboygan, Lake Huron, proves to be the HATTIE JOHNSON. She had on a cargo of coal, and is reported to have 7 ft. of water in her hold. The tug RELIEF has gone to her relief, and should the weather continue favorable will doubtless succeed in getting her afloat. The JOHNSON is a new vessel, entering into commission last year. She was built at Port Huron, of the largest class, and owned by John Johnson of the place.
