Full Text

The propeller HARLEM ran aground in the heavy fog off Fox Point early yesterday morning, and is now leaking badly. Until she is released there is no telling how badly she is damaged. Four wrecks occurred on this reef last year. Tugs and lighters have been sent from Milwaukee to the assistance of the HARLEM, which is now owned by H. J. Pauly of Milwaukee.
