Description
Full Text

MARINE DISASTER. - Saturday evening as the schooner JOSEPHINE was being towed out of Chicago harbor, and while she was passing Lake Street bridge, she ran into the schooner MARY, and carried away the jib boom and the head gear of the latter craft. As the MARY swung around in front of the JOSEPHINE at the time of the collision, which was thus rendered unavoidable, the verdict was "nobody to blame."
