Capt. James Reid has succeeded in releasing the schooner COMMERCE from Seul Choix Point, at the lower end of Lake Michigan, where she stranded in a gale early last fall. The amount of money spent altogether to release the vessel exceeds her actual value twice over. She is owned and commanded by Capt. Edward Mullen of Chicago. After taking the COMMERCE off the beach Capt. Reid towed her to Harbor Springs, Mich., at which point temporary repairs are being made. When these are completed she will be taken to Manitowoc and placed on the boxes to be put in shape for another term of active service.
