A special telegram from Kenosha, Wis. says: "The schr. HOPE has been undoubtedly lost, with all on board. She was owned in this city by C.L. Ely and Capt. C. Miller. She shipped from Milwaukee on Sunday at 2:00 in the afternoon, with 92 tons of coal for Durant, Van Aredale & Co. Capt. Miller and four hands were on board. The coal was insured for $500. There are no tidings of her at this time, and she is given up as lost by the owners. The Captain and all hands on board were residents of this city."
