The Chicago Press & Tribune of Monday says: " The schooner DAUNTLESS was
so disabled off Waukegan, that she was obliged to cast anchor. She lost one of her
sails, and her mainmast is badly sprung. The tug McQUEEN went to her relief and
towed her into this port. She is probably damaged to the amount of $300 or $400.
