PRESQUE ISLE arrived this afternoon at around 1545 from Conneaut, where the vessel had finally discharged its first cargo loaded in Two Harbors a month ago, and docked at the Mountfort Terminal. The vessel, which turned around in Lake Superior last month and returned to Duluth for repairs to ice damage, has arrived for repairs underneath the vessel. Tomorrow, her cofferdam will be installed to allow repairs to begin.

After numerous ice delays, EDWIN H. GOTT arrived in Gary on the afternoon of April 22 with its first cargo after departing winter layup here on March 23.
