The schooner ELVA, which was built in this city and taken to Lake Michigan by Capt. Sinclair some 14 years ago, while bound from Holland to Milwaukee loaded with stave bolts, capsized about 12 miles from Milwaukee. Her crew took to the boats and effected a landing at Kenosha from whence they rowed to Milwaukee. A tug has been sent in quest of the capsized craft.
