STEAMER ODANAH IS WRECK AT DULUTH
With rudder smashed and hull damaged, the steamer ODANAH, of the Lackawanna Steamship Company, of Buffalo, operated by Picklands-Mather Company of Cleveland, was towed into port at Duluth yesterday afternoon by the tugboats MINNESOTA and AMERICA. The ODANAH was damaged last night at Two Harbors. A heavy southwest sea was running as the boat attempted to enter the harbor and in some way the stern was thrown against the breakwater, splintering the rudder. Anchor was dropped inside the breakwater and wires sent to this city. At the time of the accident the ODANAH was light.
