      . . . . .

The schr. SUMMIT en route from Chicago to Kingston with a cargo of wheat, called at this port Sunday night in a leaky condition. Her captain reports that during thick weather on Lake Michigan his vessel got ashore on the North Manitou, and before getting released jettisoned a portion of her cargo. After getting underway she was discovered leaking, and it is probable that her cargo may be damaged. Capt. Dwyer called for the purpose of entering protest.
