Unknown Schooner

 

April 3, 1895

In Great Peril
Unknown Schooner Founders off St. Mary’s N. S.
Crew in the Rigging
Supposed to be an American Vessel – Name Unknown

A dispatch from Halifax, N. S., on Sunday says an unknown two-masted schooner foundered at 9.30 this morning on Trinity Ledge, about fifteen miles off Cape St. Mary, situated near the extremity of Nova Scotia, in the Bay of Fundy. At 4 p.m. about twenty feet of the masts could be seen out of the water, and the crew were in the rigging.

No means of relief is at hand. An endeavor will be made to obtain a tug boat at Yarmouth, but, being Sunday, it is very doubtful if this can be accomplished in time to rescue the unfortunate seamen.

It is also feared that the tide will have ebbed before relief arrives, in which case little hope of saving the crew in entertained. The schooner struck on the ledge at low tide.
