Full Text

The steamer TOLEDO, bound down Lake Superior with lumber from Duluth, was overcome by the gail Thursday and waterlogged, being kept afloat by the cargo of lumber. The Captain tried to make the Portage lake Canal, but his boat went aground in 24 feet of water. The crew was taken off by the life-savers. The old boat was badly battered by the storm during the night and Friday morning went to pieces. The TOLEDO was built at Cleveland in 1862 and was 181 feet long, 31 feet beam and 10 feet 7 inches depth. She was owned by John S. Grey of Detroit.

The wreck of the steamer TOLEDO has at last been removed from the entrance to the ship canal near Houghton and the waterway is free of obstruction.
