An investigation is being made by the authorities at Milwaukee into the mystery surrounding the death of Capt. Charles Gunderson aboard the schooner GRACE M. FILER yesterday. The captain died after taking two doses of what was believed to be Elsom Salts. When officials from the coroner's office went to the boat they found all of the crew intoxicated and unable to tell anything of the events happening on the ship at the time of Capt. Gunderson's death.
