STEAMER SCHOONMAKER SHATTERS ALL RECORDS.
      An Ashtabula dispatch states that speed records for the run down the lakes were shattered by the new steamer COL. JAMES M. SCHOONMAKER, which arrived there on her maiden trip this week with a cargo of ore. The SCHOONMAKER made the run from Duluth to Ashtabula, including an hour to lock down and more delays in the St. Marys River, in 76 hours. This is an average slightly over 12 miles an hour for the entire distance, The big 60o foot steel trust steamer THOMAS F. COLE left the Soo 60 minutes ahead of the SCHOONMAKER, but arrived at Ashtabula four hours and 50 minutes behind her.
