The scow FORRESTER of Chicago is on Pilot Island rocks. She has a hole through her bottom. She will probably be stripped and abandoned.

The underwriters have given up the schooner L.C. BUTTS with her cargo of 1,200 tons of coal as a total loss. Efforts to release her from Washington island, where she stranded on the first of the month, have proved fruitless. She was insured for $10,000. The scow FORESTER, stranded on Pilot island, is also a total wreck. She was a small craft and had been in service for more than twenty years.
