The captain and crew are ashore unable to get on the schooner and the owner, Mr. C. L. Fellows and a workman are on the boat unable to get off. Later—The Sea Star got loose from the pier and went on the beach, soon commencing to go to pieces. The life saving crew was telegraphed for and left the canal about 10 o'clock. They managed to rescue the two men in the boat with the life car. The Sea Star has sunk is going to pieces fast. The crew are now removing rigging and will abandon her.
