Inspected The Steamer Mills
Captain Filson and Captain Smith in Kingston Today Conferring with Wrecking Company

Captain LaBeau of the LaBeau Wrecking Company, Toledo, O., was here yesterday and with Captain Smith of Cleveland, O., made an inspection of the steamer David W. Mills, ashore on Ford Shoals, west of this city.

The heavy seas in the lake yesterday and last night must have bumped the steamer about on the shoal pretty well; but just what damage has resulted is not known. Captain D.H. Filson, who has been representing the underwriters here left last night for Kingston, Ont. It is understood that he will have a talk with the officers of the Donnelly Wrecking Company regarding the floating of the steamer.

Captain Smith is one of the firm of Smith Brothers, Underwriters, Cleveland. The Donnelly Company made an offer to take the boat off and Captain Filson will talk the matter over with the company's representatives. It is desired to get at the work just as quickly as possible, as any day a gale of wind may come down the lake that will seriously damage the boat.
