Full Text

South Haven, Mich., Nov. 22. -- The propeller T.W. SNOOK, of Whitehall, bound from Chicago to White Lake, on her last trip of the season, ran here for shelter during a severe blow early this morning. In making the harbor she struck against the corner of the south pier and stove a hole in her starboard side, and sunk just inside the harbor in eighteen feet of water. The services of a diver and steam-pump will probably be needed to raise her. Inter Ocean.
