Chicago. Oct. 27. - The steamer OREGON, was released from the beach near Houghton where she was thrown by the recent gale, and will be towed to Milwaukee for repairs. The OREGON was resting in four feet of water and it was 500 feet out before the eleven foot mark was reached in the lake. Steam pumps were put on the boat and a tug was employed in dredging a channel through the sand to deep water. The wreckers are given credit for having accomplished so difficult a task in 27 hours.
