Lake Hero Is Dead
(special to The Evening Press)
Manistee, Aug. 26.--Capt. Charles Gnewuch, one of the best known tug and steamboat captains on Lake Michigan, is dead of pneumonia. He was seventy-three years of age and had sailed out of the harbor for the last fifty years. He was connected with the Canfield Tug line for twenty years and was master of its wrecking tug. He saved many lives by brave and heroic efforts, for which the United States awarded him with a gold medal. His widow, a son, William of Milwaukee, and daughter, Mrs. E. J. Blacker of this city, survive him.
