Full Text

The steamer ROBERT WALLACE foundered in 300 feet of water on Lake Superior last night. The crew were rescued by the schooner ASHLAND which the WALLACE had in tow, and were brought to Two Harbors early today by the tug EDNA G. The WALLACE, iron ore laden, bound for Cleveland broke its stern pipe about 13 miles South by East of two Harbors. Water soon filled the hold and the crew abandoned ship. She was owned by James Corrigan of Cleveland and was built in 1882.
