Chicago, De. 4. - The steel freight steamer GERMAN from Lake Superior to South Chicago with iron ore, went ashore 15 miles north of Chicago in a blinding snow storm last night. The agents at Chicago sent a relief tug. There is little apprehension of danger to the crew of 20 men. The GERMAN is lying easily on a sand bar a quarter of a mile from shore.
