TWO STEEL STEAMERS WRECKED.
MATOA & MASABA Pounding To Pieces On The Rocks At Keweenaw Point.
Sault Ste. Marie, Mich., Sept. 30. - The captain of the Anchor Line SCHUYLKILL, which arrived from Duluth today, reports passing two boats ashore at Keweenaw Point. He thought they were the MATOA and MASABA, two big steel steamers belonging to the Minnesota Company. The MATOA and MASABA cleared from Two Harbors for Cleveland yesterday.
Keweenaw Point is one of the most dangerous spots on the lakes, and the boats stranded are likely to prove total losses, owing to the heavy northwest gale.
