A Trip On Steam Yacht Dot -

The Consul Will Send Them Home - The cargo of the str. Oconto was only valued at $60,000. The press correspondents drew largely on their imagination when they fixed it at $500,000. The craft was insured for $15,000. It is probable that the Donnellys will examine the boat and make an offer to rescue her. A dozen of the sailors on the craft have arrived in the city and placed themselves under the protection of the United States Consul. If they cannot ship on vessels the consul will send them home under the law for the protection of American seamen abroad. The sailors saved little of their effects.
