ANOTHER RECORD BROKEN!
TWO-MASTED SCHOONER SOLD FOR $6 IN CHICAGO
Chicago, July 4. - The low water mark in the market for vessel property was reached today, when the schooner H.A. Richmond, a two masted vessel, registering 189 net tons, was sold for $6. When the bill of sale was filed for record in Collector Nixon's office it was said to be the cheapest bona fide transfer ever filed at the Chicago custom house. The boat has not been in service for a couple of years. The Richmond was built in Buffalo in 1861, and was sold by Alexander Anderson. The new owner, Benj. Jacobson, will convert the schooner to a barge and use it in transferring cement around the river.
