Full Text

The schooner FORESTER, loaded with lumber, went ashore on Saturday about 100 feet south of the dock at Port Sanilac. The deck load is scattered along the shore for 2 miles. The crew started for the shore in a yawl boat, but capsized about 150 feetfrom shore. The men succeeded in getting ashore safely and are being taken care of by the lightkeeper Holmes. The lumber is the property of the Port Sanilac Lumber Co. The schooner is rapidly going to pieces. She is broken in two now.
