Milwaukee, Wis., Feb. 4th - A steamer believed to be the car ferry Muskegon, with a crew of twenty men aboard was reported off South Milwaukee yesterday, showing signs of distress. The Muskegon was due here at 4:15 p.m., and up to a late hour last night she had not arrived.

Later - The car ferry has reached here safely.
