      THE L.C. BUTTS STILL AT ANCHOR - THE ONTARIO
      Special Dispatch to the Detroit Free Press
Goderich, November 15. - Reports from the schooner Ontario, ashore north of Point Clark, are not very encouraging, and it is feared she may prove a total loss. The crew had a horrible time reaching the shore, some of them being in an exhausted condition when picked up. It is feared the gale of to-night will add more to the long list of the past few days.
