Full Text

The Schooner ELBE, with hardwood lumber for Two Rivers, collided with the schooner CAPELLA off Muskegon in the storm of Friday night. The ELBE lost her topmast and jibboom, and had her foreboom broken, and the CAPELLA's dolphin striker crushed into her cabin. She drifted helplessly in the northeaster till off Two Rivers, where she attempted to anchor and was picked up by the life saving crew. - Muskegon Report.
