Full Text

Menominee, May 23 - The barge COLWELL is still on the Peshtigo reef, but there are good prospects of having her in deep water before night. She was pulled over 1,000 ft. yesterday. Temporary repairs were made by a diver. The lumber lost from the barges was from the barges owned by Perley, Lowe & Co. and fully insured.
