I Working on the Waldo, | For several weeks past the Favorite* has been employed In removing a por- tion of the cargo of iron ore from the steamer L .C. Waldo. This work had to be done before to make it possible to get at the holes that were torn in the steamer’s bottom by pounding on the rocks. When the tug left Manitou island early yesterday morning everything was in readiness for making the necessary repairs and it is probable that the Waldo will be floated within a short time. Some 3,000 tons of ore have been removed from the* hull and placed on scows. The vessel Is unprotected from the force of the waves, and it would not be safe to postpone the work of saving her until spring, as is the erase* with the steamer Turret Chief. Slow progress has been made with the Waldo, as the Favorite has been able to work only four or five days | i
