- Full Text
Chicago, Sept. 25 - The stmr. IRON KING, light from South Chicago to Chicago River to load grain, went on the inner Hyde Park Reef last night at 8:30. The tugs DICKINSON and WELCOME, with the life-saving crew, went to her relief. The place where the steamer struck is about 1 1/2 miles from shore, and fully two miles out of the course for deep draft vessels, from South Chicago. With the wind off land, the IRON KING is in no danger but should it shift to the north, the reef is a most dangerous spot.
LATER - The IRON KING was released at midnight by the tugs DICKENSON and
WELCOME, apparently uninjured, and was towed to an elevator.
