Description
Full Text

The Canadian steamer SEGUIN, coming from Spragg, Georgian Bay, with a big cargo of lumber, dumped a lot of it into Lake Michigan, 20 miles off Chicago, Wednesday. There was a lump of a sea running, and the deck load got loose and slid off. The Underwriters will tally off the remainder of the cargo and see how much got away.
