Inspect my line and I guarantee you will be an addition to the crowds of real bargain aeekers that buy their clothing, hats and shirts at the New Broad way store. MACKISAW CITV, Mich., May 10.—The Bteamship Cayuga of the Lehigh Valley line, bound from Chicago to Buffalo, collided with the steamer Joseph L. Eurd, of the Lake Superior line, Lake Superior to Chicago, 3 miles this side of Skilla- galee lighthouse, at 4:30 Friday morning. The Cayuga sank twenty-five minutes later. The bow of the Hurd was knocked clean ofi, and only her cargo of lumber kept her afloat. The only loss of life was on the Ilurd. George Johnson, the steward, was knocked overboard by the crash and was drowned. The remaining members of both crews were picked up by the Minnesota liner Ma- iiola and landed here Friday forenoon. Duo to Dcniio Foe. There was a dense fog hanging on the lake at the time the boats came together, As they were in a dangerous locality, being on the main highway of the lakes on the passage" through the Straits of Mackinaw, a strict lookout was maintained on both vessels, but their speed was not wholly slackened. They were not over 200 feet apartwhen their signals were distinguished, and then it was too late to avoid the collision. Valuable Cargo Lost, The Cayuga went down in ' 15 fathoms of water, about midway between Skillagalee and Waugoshance lights. She had on board 1,500 tons of flour from Milwaukee, valued at $70.000, j and 30,000 bushels of oats valued at 53,500. In addition there were a number of minor items, which will bring the total value of the cargo to about $00,000. 'The lost steamer was in command of Capt. Grazer, arid this was his third season. He has stood high as a navigator, and during the three years that he has sailed the Cayuga had not up to this time had a serious mishap. He was ordered at noon by General Manager W. P. Henry to return at once to Chicago and report to E. J. Henry, the agent of the line in that city. The ihird, which is an old-timer Jn lake business, was commanded by Capt. Charles E. Wilson. This is the first suiisou she has been in commission, for several years, 011 account of dull freights. Gone to Find tho Wreck. CIIEUOYGAX, Mich., May 10.— The biff, wrecking tag Favorite was dispatched Friday forenoon to find the wreck of the steamer Joseph L. Hurd, near Skillagalee light, and save what there is left of her. I.IMM Confirmed by Local Affnnti. CHICAGO, May 10.—The first intimation of the loss of the two steamers was received here at 11 o'clock Friday. Not long after Capt. Charles E. Wilsou, who was in command of the Ilurd, telegraphed General Manager Austrian from Mackinaw City that he had been in collision with the Cayuga in a dense fog oft Skillagalee, that he had lost one of his crew, nud asked for instructions as to what he should do. Underwriters In n I'fciiln. Among underwriters the loss of the Cayuga. following so closely upon the heavy list of marine casualties the past two weeks, created the greatest consternation. It is estimated that the total insurance on boats and cargo is about 8300,000. The flour of the Cayuga is believed to be insured by the British and foreign and allied companies. The Jll-F»ted Boat*. [Tho Cayuga was tho second of the stool steamers fcuilt for tSo Lohigh Valley Line by thoGlobe Iron worhsof Cleveland. There were live of those boats, all built on identically the sumo model, nufl glvoa nearly tho samo outlit. Tho cost of the CayuRU . was Bbout $250,000. The flvo boats have boon known over since they went Into service, as being tho handsomest of all lake freight car- rior.s. During the past six years that the fleet has been engaged In lake traffic, the boats have boon unusually fortunate. On the other hand, the 'Hurd bolonged to an earlier era of naval architecture on the lakes. She was built In Detroit, in I860, measures 759 tons, and for nearly a generation "was engaged In carrying passengers between Chicago and Lake Superior. Some tbreo years ago tho passenger cabins were taken off and the steamer was converted into a freight boat. Then for-a .couple of years business was so poor between Chicago and Lake Superior that the steamer was not kept In service. She was fitted out; early this spring, however, and had made two trips be- loro she was cut down by the Cayuga.] BACKBONE BROKEN. they were allowed to resume tbeir Jotss, they were all asked if they were in sympathy with the men who struck.
