Mary Briskie (Schooner), aground, 1 May 1882
- Full Text
A MIXED AFFAIR.
THE DISASTER TO THE MARY BRISKIE.
The master of the schooner FLYING MIST, according to the Milwaukee Dispatches, insists that the schooner MARY COLLINS is not ashore ar Bark River that the vessel there is the C.G. MIXER. He is all wrong. The MIXER is not in trouble at all. It is the FLYING MIST man that is the mixer. In saying the the MARY COLLINS was ashore ar Bark River the Inter Ocean was wrong, too, however, It is the MARY BRISKIE that is stranded. But the MARY BRISKIE was the MARY COLLINS until a short time ago, when her name was changed. That the BRISKIE is ashore there is not the least doubt, the intelligence coming here to Mr. Briskie, the present owner, in a dispatch from the master.
The steambarge EMMA E. THOMPSON, with steam pumps, etc., which left here to go to the MARY L. HIGGIE and the BRISKIE was in Milwaukee Sunday night for shelter and probably proceeded yesterday.

A dispatch was received here yesterday from captain Martin Blackburn, wrecking master for Atkins & Beckwith, dated Manitowoc, which said. " We are here with the schooner MARY L. HIGGIE. Can't get a dry-dock here [all full] and will take her to Milwaukee. We then go to the MARY COLLINS with both pumps."

NOTE:-- It would appear that it was the MARY COLLINS instead of the BRISKIE, that was wrecked.
