The schooner Elizabeth Day capsized in Lake Michigan off Pyramid point Wednesday night during a storm and is a total loss. The crew of four men left the schooner just before it went over and succeeded in getting to Sleeping Bear point in their yawl. The Day was 97 feet long and was bound from Elk Rapids to Cheboygan with a cargo of hardwood lumber.
When Pere Marquette steamer No. 3 arrived at Ludington Wednesday, her crew reported having passed through a lot of wreckage about five miles off Little Point Sauble. Stateroom furnishings, timber and parts of a ship's cabin were seen, but no name was seen on anything. It is the opinion of the crew that a vessel stranded Wednesday near the point and a heavy sea broke her up.
