Steamer Turret Chief Is Pulled off Rocks


Canadian Press Despatch

CALUMET, Mich., July 14.--After many weeks of effort, Captain Alexander Cunning and his crew of wreckers have succeeded in releasing the Canadian seamer Turret Chief, which was driven on the rocks six miles east of Copper Harbor, Lake Superior, in the great storm of last November. Except for damage to the hull, the vessel is said to be in good condition. The steamer was floated and is to be taken to Port Arthur for repairs.

Captain Cunning accomplished a feat few vesselmen believed possible. The ship had been driven nearly one hundred feet out on shore.
