Wrangell experienced a very stormy night last Thursday night. No damage was reported but the Eliju Thompson towing a barge, which carried a very valuable cargo of whale oil, came into the harbor and remained here all day Friday. The boats had reached Lincoln Rock on their southbound trip when the sea became so rough that it was found advisable to come to Wrangell until the storm abated. On Friday forenoon an attempt to resume the journey was made, but the boats returned to port again until later in the day.
