STEAMER CONEMAUGH STRUCK A WRECK
LOST HER WHEEL BY HITTING HULK OF SCHOONER ADAMS
The Anchor liner Conemaugh arrived in Detroit last evening in tow of the wrecker Wales and tug Home Rule, of Amherstburg, and will remain here until a new wheel arrived from Buffalo.
The big steamer lost her wheel about 10 o'clock Friday night by striking the wreck of the old schooner Adams in Lake Erie. Aside from losing her wheel her bottom is damaged and she is leaking, but not enough to cause any anxiety.
Capt. Bloom, of the Conemaugh, says that when he struck the wreck his boat stopped dead still and swung almost completely around on the old hulk. The steamer will be docked as soon as the new wheel arrives from Buffalo.
