John Harms, a submarine diver, descended to the foundered Kate Kelly, off Racine North point on Sunday. He found the hull headed in a northeasterly direction. The jibboom and bowsprit were intact, but the foremast was gone and the staysail was hanging to the rigging and stays. One anchor was overboard. The deck, rail and cabin were gone. At the stern he only went down as far as the masthead, being unable to get lower on account of the topsail and rigging being tangled in a mass. The entire rigging was carefully examined, but no sign of a body was found. He brought up a large piece of the flag or jack which was found tangled in the forerigging, having evidently been placed at half-mast.
