The Anchor Line's big passenger propeller TIONESTA, with a good passenger list from Duluth to Buffalo, went ashore three miles above Whitefish Point, Lake Michigan, in a dense fog yesterday. The boat ran out about two feet on a sandy bottom, but succeeded in releasing herself, apparently without damage.
