Chicago, May 26. -- The steamer B. W. ARNOLD is ashore on Green Island Reef, upper Lake Huron. McMerran of Port Huron telegraphs underwriters here today that she is a foot out all around and says pontoons or jacks must be sent to raise her. Green Island Reef is one of the danger spots on Lake Huron. The ARNOLD is a new boat valued at $55,000 and ought to stand hard punishment. She is insured to the limit with Crosby, McDonald, Aetna and david Vance. She was built by F. W. Wheeler at West Bay City in 1885, 647 tons, and was rated A 1* this season.
