- Full Text
Leamington, Ont. May 29. -- The tug C.A. LORMAN, engaged in raft towing, was beached near this point last evening. Several men were on board and reached shore by a line. It seemed that in the gale the wheel-chains parted and the tug then rolled her boiler adrift. Seas also carried away the yawl.

Capt. Alex Ruelle's tud C.A. LORMAN, ashore on Pelee Island, Lake Erie, is in very bad shape. She is lying so far over on her side that she will have to be raised with pontoons. The Murphy Wrecking company will do the work. Capt. Ruelle estimates it will cost $3,000 or more before she is ready for work again. He did not carry any insurance. She is rated A 1, and valued at $9,000.
