General Marine Notes
Thursday night the steamer Major ran on Whitefish Point, Lake Superior and was wrecked, the crew being picked up by a passing steamer.
Dispatches received at Sheboygan Saturday, announced that the steam barge Edward Buckley, went on the beach at Harbor Beach, Mich., during the last storm.
Wreckers have abandoned the job of releasing the steamer Matoa, which went ashore on the rocks off Point aux Barques. She is so badly damaged that she cannot be saved.
While reaching for mail from the deck of the steamer to the mail boat in the Detroit river, Frank foster of Manitowoc, 33 years old, first officer of the steamer Mather, fell overboard and was drowned.
Among the victims of the big blow was the steamer L. C. Waldo, which went to pieces on Gull Rock, near Manitou island, the crew being rescued after great suffering. The steamer Turret Chief was also a boat that foundered without loss of life, the crew being rescued after a most harrowing experience. The M. A. Hanna also foundered, the crew being saved.
