The Steamer Rand Disabled
The disabled steamer Rand was towed into
port Monday afternoon by the steamer Edward Buckley. The Rand was lumber laden from Ludington to St. Joseph. When twenty
miles off Grand Haven Monday morning her
engine was disabled by a broken piston rod.
The steamer at once fell into the trough of
the big sea, but was picked up later by the
steamer Crouse. The towline parted after
the Crouse had helped her ten miles, and the
steamer Edward Buckley came to the assistance of the Rand. Four of the Rand's crew came ashore in a small boat. The deck load
is gone from the steamer, but otherwise she
suffered but little.
