It is reported that on Thursday last the fishing tugs Anderson and Maxwell, of Manistique, gave up their day's fishing, a loss of several thousand dollars, to rescue the schooner H. P. Baldwin, which had been abandoned by her crew. They towed her to Manistique. There they found the crew, who, it is said, did not even thank them, but ordered them off the boat. The Baldwin is owned by L. P. and J. A. Smith, of Cleveland, and is valued at $15,000, her cargo of iron ore being worth $5,000 more. Both are said to have been fully insured. In ordinary cases on the lakes the two tugs would be given a salvage claim of $3,000 or $4,000.
