Description
Full Text

The Chicago Dem. Press says that on Monday evening as the schooner GEORGE F. FOSTER was coming in by the north channel, and the propeller IOWA by the south, they came in collision just inside of the end of the south pier, striking with so much force as to tear the stern out of the propeller from light water mark to the deck. The schooner was but slightly damaged.
