Full Text

Boiler Inspector M.F. Chalk of West Superior, has been offered $ 1,000, all expenses and an insurance on his life for $14,000 if he will undertake a submarine search for the PEWABIC, in which Oliver Pelkey lost his life last fall. Besides this, if the vessel is found, Chalk would be given one-half the proceeds of the sale of the cargo, which, as it includes 555 tons of pure copper, it is believed would be over $100,000. Mr. Chalk has been a professional diver ever since he was sixteen years of age, but is undecided as to whether to accept the proposal.
