The unknown schooner which collided with the MARENGO of Sheboygan Thursday morning was the E.P. ROYCE, bound from Chicago to Ogontz Bay to load cedar. A telegraph from Manitowoc stated that the ROYCE had reached that port in a badly damaged condition. Her foresail, mainsail and mizzen rigging were carried away and her starboard quarter stove in.
