With heavy shore Ice forming even more rapidly than before, the severe drop in temperature and the mouth of Kagle Harbor once more choked with Ice. Capt. A. F. Glaza after a rough but uneventful trip back to the coast guard station advised the owner* of the Kamloops that a further search with an open boat would be Impossible and urged that a tug be sent from Port Arthur, Canada, to scout the shore* of Manltou Island and Isle Royale. Hope« Are Meager. The blizzard sweeping the region bodes HI for the crew of the Kamloops. The guardsmen feel confident the boat has not been wrecked on Keweenaw, leading to the theory It has been hurled on the rocks of Isle Royale rather than Manltou. or has sunk. Unless the Kamloops crew made Manltou and has found shelter In the deserted lighthouse which was left stocked with food and fuel, chance of the men's survival of the latest storm on the heels of the one a week ago are regarded as meager. There Is a slight chance that tho men, If cast 011 Isle Royale, mignt have made their way to the cabins of the dozen fishermen and game wardens who inhabit the Isle during the winter, miles away from where the Kamloops was seen headed for the rocks. This, how- over, Is unlikely as the men. drenched by the spray, would have frozen before they could have progressed a mile. Isle Royale is 50 miles long and about 20 across. They may, however, have stayed aboard their ship and are waiting the arrival of some other craft. Rescue efforts now must rest with a quick run by powerful tugs from the Canadian mainland to Isle Royale and Manltou.
