Milwaukee, June 24. - The iron steamer ROANOKE, owned by J. Pauley of Milwaukee, lies on a reef off Les Chenaux Island, near Detour Passage, full of water.
The ROANOKE was en route to the island from Chicago for cedar. As the boat has no water bottom, and her plating is of wafer thinness, many consider her release problematical. She is uninsured.
