Arrangements have been in progress several (Jays for putting the tug Bismarck into winter quarters. Thursday she done some . running through the - ice, which caused her to spring a leak, since which time her pumps have been in constant opcrttflon to keep her hold clear from water. Sho will be placed upon way?. A NIGHT'S DISASTERS. The Heaviest Storm Season. of the A Number of Vessels 'Ashore in the Vicinity of Cheboygan. Twenty Men Rf scuretl by the Eliza Wil liams from Perilous Positions. Last Sunday was ono of the most pleas ant days since winter settled down upon us. During the day there w ere no indi cations which would lead even the weatherwise to suppose that the night would be very different from the day, although Gen. Myers, sitting at the head of the signal service at Washington might haves een the storm start a day or two pre viously from the Rocky Mountains and follow its way eastward, and know from past experience that it would strike here in its fury about the time it did. All this knowledge, however, was of no avail here, for the weatherwise upon the land and the sailors upon the lakes were ig norant of the pending danger until about nine o'clock Sunday e Vehing, when the storm struck with its' terrible" power. The wind blew a hurricane, and the h thermometer went down during the night lrom freezing to several degrees below zero. Not even when morning came had the storm ceased, but It had spent its fury. THE WRECKS. In sight of Cheboygan lay two vessels which had been thrown out of the chan nel and were grounded, one Jess than a mile fromshore and near the harbor chan nel, the other near Lighthouse Point. This last was literally covered with ice, the heavy seas having rushed against her with such power as to drive the spray up on her spars and rigging thirty feet or more. The sea was miming so high that it did not seem possible for the crew to get ofT, yet from the appearance of the vessel from the shore it would seem equally impossible for them them to live on board. About nine o'clock a messen ger came from the LHrhthouse, saying the crew had taken to the rigging. The tug Eliza Williams immediately prepared to go to their assistance. Owing to the heavy ice which had formed during the mht, full two hours were taken up in break ing ice and getting out of the river. The sea w:i3 still running so high that it seemed unsafe to launch a boat from the tug, so a small boat was taken in tow, containing five men who volunteered for the arduous and dangerous undertaking. After getting started the Williams made a quick and safe trip to the vessel, and nine men found upon her staying upon the deck the best the" could, having been driven from the cabin by. water. They were covered with ice, and so chilled that they could scarcely move. They were safely transferred to warmer quarters on the tug and soon landed in the .village, the vessel was the Mary E. Peru, and coal loaded. Upon hor return the tug made a call at the other vessel and found her to be the Sweetheart, loaded with" iron ore. She was not in a suffering condition, hav ing run only upon a mud bank. v A short time after having returned dis tress signals were seen from a small boat out in the lake at the edge of the ice. The villiam3 immediately, went out and found a yawl containing six men from the schooner Francis E. Palms, which wf s ashore about eleven miles up the shore. They were brought into warmer quarters. STILL MOKE MEN RESCUED. In the afternoon another messenger came from the lighthouse with the informa tion that a vessel with a signal of dis tress dying could be seen below the point. Again the Williams started out and went to her relief, finding the schoon er Grenada with six men on board, who had been upon the icy'decks arid in the rigging during the jlay, having been driven from the cabin by water. These were in a worse condition than those taken from the Peru, for they had been out longer. ' This made twenty-one men in all res cued from great danger, and doubtless some of them from death, by the Eliza Williams, for there i3 no probability that all of them could have lived in such an exposed condition through the night, and none of them would have come through without being badly frozen. Capt George D. Greenfield, command ing the Williams, deserves much credit for the exertions made in behalf of the imperiled men. OTHER DISASTERS. ; The schooner Palms, ashore about eleven miles up the shore, was loaded with coal. The was" scuttled by order of the captain when he found that she was dragging her anchors, so that she would not go heavy upon the rocky shore. She was in a sufficient depth of water, so that steam pumps was all that would be neces sary to have her afloat again. Monday afternoon Capt. Greenfield had a telegram from the bark Roscius, ashore on Green Island shoals, to come to her assistance. As soon a3 tho weather cleared enough to make it safe to go out, early Wednesday morning the Williams started for her. Thursday morning she was safely tied up to Hurd's dock in the river. Her main topmast" and most of ber sails were gone, otherwise she was in fair condition. She was loaded with lumber. She will lay up here during the winter. ' The Roscins let go her anchor during Sunday night under St. Helena, and was dragged to the head of Green Island shoals. i The crew of the schooner Gorton, ashore on Waugelschance Point, arrived here on Wednesday night. The vessel is loaded with coal, and is in a bad condi tion. She was ran into square amidships by some vessel whose name we did not learn. Finding that she was badly dam aged she was run into' shallow water. She will be able to be moved when steam pumps arc put upon her and the water taken from her hold. We learn that the little schooner Plow Boy, owned by Sam. Dodge and R. Wil son of this place, wa3 Wrecked Sunday night. She was assisting a grain loaded vessel, ashore on Lake Michigan, and was made fast to her. The storm coming up she .was knocked to pieces against the vessel. The wrecking tugs Prindiville and Sweepstakes arrived in the straits on Thursday and proceeded to the relief of some of the vessels. If the weather holds good a few days there is no doubt but that they can all be got off and taken to places of safety. ' - , We have given only the disasters which occurred almost within sight of this place. The whole lake coast is probably strewn with wrecked vessels a.ul those which are ashore and in trouble. One old lake captain said that Sunday night was the worst he ever experiened upon the lakes. The Improvement Association. We are confident that this association will be a success. Already enough have signed the articles of association pub lished last week to'inake it so. There are a few, however, who think that the membership1 fee is a little high, and have declined to enter the association on that ground We are aware that the times ard hard, (and that money is scarce in this place, yet we think that there is no man who has any property in the county who can afford to remain out. If every man In Cheboygan would join the associa tion and labor zealously in its behalf everything in the place would soon take a start forward. It is often surprising how much can be accomplished bv a number working together to a certain end, and how little when the same num ber arc working individually. In union t!?cre is strength. Cheboygan needs the association and the association needs the co-opera lion oi everyone. Aoman can look upon this and say there is no need of my joining. There is need of every one, and the more interest that is taken the greater the results which can be ac complished. The old adage has it that "it is the last pound which breaks the camel's back." So it may be in this case, that it is the very assistance that the man who fails to join this association could have given it, which would be needed to accomplish its ends. It may be that some- . . . lime some very lmpoituu m t er my havejto be dropped for the want of the very money which such person's membership would bring. So we say that there is no person who can afford to remain outside of the association. If a m;t?i is really in terested in the welfare ot the place he will show it by his works. The Street Lamps. The fifteen street lamps ordered by the council some weeks since, arrived on the St. Joseph on her last trip. When the Limps were first ordered, it was proposed that the posts should be set and have them in readiness when the lamps arrived. This was not done and the prospects now seem to be that they will be put to no use' before spring. It may be that we have a very eroneous idea ot the matter, but we think that there are a few loca tions where, if ever a light is needed, it is during the winter months. It ma)' not be necessary to have them all put up this fall, but now the lamps are on hand there are some which ought to be put in to use. There are probably few nights in the year that lamps would be more needed than last Sunday night. There probably will be others equally as bad. We say let the lamps, or at least a por tion of them be placed where they will do the most good. The Stage Business. We last week noticed that it was ru mored that an, opposition stage line, was to be put on between here and Petoskey. Whether or not that rumor was founded on fact we are unable to state, but cer tain it is that the stage business has been lively this week. Wednesday two sleigh loads went out; Thursday two load3 again went out, and two. came In while a special went through Thursday night. One cause of this large increase of travel, is the disasters to the lake vessels in this vicinity, and the fact that many of them are going into winter quarters wherever they can get into a good har bor, and discharging their crews. These men going home constitute a large por tion ot the outward bound travel. We understand that there arc still a number of crews on their way to this place to get outside. ' Lumber Afloat. Monday there was quite a quantity of lumber seen floatiug in the Straits, and below the lighthouse point quite a quan tity of it came ashore. This of course wa3 a chance for something to be made, and it was improved by quite a number, regardless of the weather. Men and teams were along the shore gathering it jn, but to what extent it was secured we did not learn. The lumber came from" the propeller D. Caldwell and consort, which grounded Sunday morning a few miles up the shore. By disposing of a portion of their deck load they got off without assistance. The., schooner Wayne,, noticed elsewhere, also: threw over her entire deck load, but being a number of miles below nothing was seen of this lumber near here. A telegram Friday from Charles R. Smith announced the safe arrival of the St. Joseph at Detroit. r ' , ' , . Unclaimed Letter List. Tho following is a list of letters remaining in the Cheboygan postoffice, uncalled for, Dec. 3.
