Full Text

Two schooners were lost early yesterday morning off Cleveland harbor. The schooner TWO FANNIES sprung a leak and sank as day was breaking, The crew consisted of Capt. Miller, Mate Losier, Second Mate Bull and Alexander Last; Harry Anderson; Claud Merchant and James McDonald. All escaped safely in a yawl. The boat carried stone and was fully insured. The schooner FANNIE L. JONES was swamped by the heavy seas just outside Cleveland. Capt. E. C. Cummings of Milan was drowned. The Cleveland life-saving crew saved the JONES' crew from the rigging.

Two sunken wrecks on Lake Erie should receive attention as obstructions to navigation. The schooner FAYETTE BROWN, sunk a short time ago near the dummy in collision with one of the Northern Steamship Company's steel boats is in the channel of boats passing to and from Buffalo, and outside of Cleveland a short distance northwest of the piers the spars of the schooner TWO FANNIES, which foundered in a gale last season, are but a few feet below the surface of the water. Mr. M.A. Bradley, owner of the FAYETTE BROWN, says she is not worth raising a and no one claims the hull of the sunken TWO FANNIES, which is certainly a total loss.
