A FISHING TUG FOUNDERS.
A dispatch from Ashland says: The branch establishment of the A. Booth Packing Company of Bayfield loses $10,000 by the sinking of the fishing tug MAY CORRIGAN. The latter was found in a helpless condition by the steamer CAMP of bark Point. The crew was taken off and the tug taken in tow, but the heavy seas foundered her. The MAY CORRIGAN has been in the fish business for nearly 10 years. She is a total loss.
