To Copper llarbor >ov. 20. The Favorite, which Is captained by Alex Cunning, of Port Huron, and has a crew of twenty-four men, went to Copper Harbor about Nov. 20, and has since that time been working on the two wrecks. When the tug was first called from St. Ignace, where it is stationed. It was employed bv the company which held the insurance oil the steamer Turret Chief, but the work was abandoned until spring, after it had been in progress, but a short time. The steamer is firmly on the rocks five miles from Copper Harbor, at the northern end of tho Keweenaw peninsula, and is almost completely out of water. Its position is not one of great danger, as it is sheltered from all northern gales. The boat was light when it went aground and it struck head on. The* stern is now more than eight feet out of water. ! The wreck occurred during the gale of Nov. 8-10, when the boat could not be held to its course. It struck dur- Ing a blinding storm, and for some time it was believed by the crew that j the boat hit Isle Royale.
