Full Text

From Sturgeon Bay: -- "The scow SPEED, Captain Athur Dow, loaded with lumber at Clay Banks Sunday evening and ran to the canal for shelter from the southeast gale. She broke her rudder, and on leaving the pier had to steer with her canvass. She struck the north pier at the canal at 9 o'clock, staving a hole in her bow, causing a bad leak, but got into the canal where she now lies. She will have to go to Manitowoc for repairs.
