Alva Bradley (Schooner), U1910, sunk ?, 1894

Full Text

Cheboygan, Nov. 2 - Work in recovering the cargo of steel billets from the sunken schr. ALVA BRADLEY, between the Manitous, is progressing very slowly. The wreckers on the stm. T.W. SNOOK, which is here storm bound, say that they have had but 2 hours of good weather since they began. They have succeeded in getting the schooner's chains and about 40 tons of the billets. There will be no trouble in getting the entire cargo if the weather is favorable. The stern of the BRADLEY is gone, and the last spar has been carried away. Nothing is holding the wreck together but the stem and the deck beams.
