CRESCENT CITY WILL BE LAUNCHED SECOND TIME.
Cleveland, April 2. - It is not often that a great ship is launched more than once, but the stranded steamer CRESCENT CITY will take the plunge from terra firma a second time. Instead of being dragged off the shore at Lakewood, she will be elevated several feet and actually launched. The work of wrecking the CRESCENT CITY will be actively begun with a big force of men early next week. The Pittsburg Steamship Company is rapidly assembling the large amount of equipment to accomplish this heavy job. The air compressors will be used to force the water out of the tanks.

      ENTIRE WRECKING CREW POISONED.
Duluth. May 19. - Forty-five members of the wrecking crew which has been working on the stranded steamer Crescent City at Lakewood are now under a doctor's care, having been poisoned by their food. None is in a dangerous condition. Capt. W. W. Smith, who is in charge of the work is in the most serious condition, but will recover. It is believed that the trouble was caused either by the milk or meat used at the boat and samples have been sent to the State chemist.
