Duluth, Minn., Nov. 19. -- The steamer JAMES H. HOYT, ashore on Otter Island Reef, has been abandoned by the owners to the underwriters. Capt. Reid, who is at Bayfield, was taken to the HOYT yesterday to command the task of caring for the boat. The crew is still on the boat and will remain despite warnings that the members lives are endangered by so doing. Food and fuel have become exhausted and a fresh supply will be taken to the steamer by the wrecking company.
