      The prop. CUBA, whose cargo practically was destroyed by Fire on Wednesday night, steamed out into the open lake just outside of the breakwater yesterday and dumped the remains of her cargo overboard. All that was of any value had been unloaded at the Marine Dock. The interior of the vessel received a thorough scrubbing. The CUBA now is tied up at the Lackawana Trestle. It is thought that all necessary repairs on her can be made in a few days. With the exception of a somewhat charred interior, she is as sound as ever.
