Caribou Islands, ON (Lake Superior) Tender LAMBTON Wreck, Apr 1922
WRECKAGE OF LAMBTON IDENTIFIED AT SOO.
NO DOUBT IS LEFT MISSING LIGHTHOUSE STEAMER FOUNDERED IN STORM.
MANY LIVES LOST.
FINAL BULLETIN REMOVES LAST HOPE OF RELATIVES OF CREW AND PASSENGERS.
Sault Ste. Marie, Mich., April 30. -- A description of the wreckage picked up by the U.S.S. Cook, wirelessed here from Whitefish Point, apparently completely identifies the wrecked vessel as the missing lighthouse tender, Lambton.
The Cook was unable to get to the Soo because of ice conditions in the Upper river, and sent the description by radio, instead of bringing the wreckage here for identification.
Description of wreckage follows:
"A large piece of a cabin with white woodwork. A brass bracket lamp with the trade mark H. L. Pieper, Montreal, on it. A nickel plated match box underneath lamp, with a trade mark figure 4.
The word Seythe is inscribed over the window frame and the glass is single and colored brown, with a brown colored shutter. The door is painted brown and has a glass window in it. A brass lock knob is on the inside of the door and a ring on the outside."
This description is said by local persons familiar with the Lambton to correspond with parts of the missing boat. There is now virtually no doubt that the Lambton and all its crew and passengers, numbering about 19, sank.
Final Bulletin Posted.
Parry Sound, Ont., April 30. -- M. Braise, marine agent here for the department of marine and fisheries, who has been posting bulletins regarding the missing steamer, Lambton, yesterday posted a final bulletin which removes the last basis of hope entertained by relatives, that the crew and passengers on the Lambton might yet be found. The bulletin announces that the search, for survivors has been exhaustive, but fruitless.
