SCHOONER EMILY TAYLOR IS WRECKED AT ZEIZER BAY.
Menominee, Mich., Nov. 10. -- The schooner EMILY TAYLOR was wrecked at Zeizer Bay, twenty miles north of here, last evening, and the crew, consisting of Capt. Charles Stone, his wife, two children and two sailors, spent a perilous night on the wrecks before they were rescued by fishermen. The schooner is owned by Capt. Stone and hails from Gladstone, Mich. She had loaded wood at Arthur Bay for Green Bay City, and was caught in the blow yesterday afternoon. For a time the men managed to keep their boat off the beach, but finally the gale grew too heavy, and the schooner went on the rocks in Zeizer Bay.
When the wreck struck the beach the seas went entirely over her, and those on board were momentarily expecting that the hull would go to pieces under them. No help could be summoned, and the condition of the wife and children of Capt. Stone was pitiful. This morning fishermen discovered their peril and went to the rescue, in spite of the heavy gale and sea, which caused great risk of life. By dint of the best efforts of the men, the entire crew were finally taken ashore, and all are now being cared for.
It is believed that all will recover from the effects of their exposure. The TAYLOR measures only fifty-five tons, and was built in 1873, [?] being seventy-one feet long.
