Raised From the Deep

Muskegon, Mich, October 23. - (Special.) - The big wrecking tug Protection, of Bay City, is in the harbor with a scow she has been at work on for several days raising from a depth of 100 feet. The scow was loaded with $5,000 worth of machinery from the steamer Wheeler, wrecked at Michigan City. The scow sank five miles off shore in a big storm while being towed down the lake. Capt. Reid made nineteen descents before he succeeded in locating the machinery. That which has been raised was shipped to-day by rail to Bay City. A 5-ton windlass is yet under water, to be raised to-morrow.
