SUNK IN MIDLAKE.
Two Rivers, Wis., June 1. -- The small steamer GRACE WILLIAMS, a recent purchase of Capt. Le Claire, Joseph Harrington and Albert Mann of this port, encountered the gale of Thursday morning last while being towed across the lake from Sutton's Bay by the tug TEMPLE EMERY. The yawing of the WILLIAMS caused the towline to part, and a little later she foundered in forty-five fathoms of water. The mishap occurred about midway between the Manitou Islands and the west shore.
The GRACE WILLIAMS was built at Manitowoc in 1885, measured 46 tons, and was worth probably $5,000. No insurance was carried.
