THE CROWELL WRECK LOCATED.
      Chicago, June 6, -- Fishermen at Michigan City claim that they have located the wreck of the tug W. R. CROWELL with their nets. An expedition to drag the locality will be sent out immediately. The CROWELL foundered when going to the wreck of the steamer F. W. WHEELER near Michigan City in December 1893
      The Dunham Line dragged the bottom of the lake for several weeks last summer in a vain attempt to find the tug.
