Full Text

Sturgeon Bay, Wis., December 5. -- While the schooner CHALLENGE, Capt. Jacobs, was trying to get out of Mud Bay today, his vessel missed stays and went on Bailey's Harbor north reef. She was loaded with merchandise and bound to Washington Island. A volunteer life-saving crew, members of the station at Bailey's harbor, went to her assistance. She will undoubtedly prove a total loss. She was built at Manitowoc and came out in 1852. Her gross measurement is 87 tons.

      Sturgeon Bay, Wis., Dec. 12. -- The tug DUNCAN CITY succeeded in releasing the stranded schooner CHALLENGE yesterday afternoon and she was brought here the same evening. She was leaking badly, having pounded a hole in her bottom forward. She is being stripped and will be shoved in the mud, and early next season docked at the shipyard for repairs. Her entire cargo was saved.
