      Milwaukee, Wis., Dec. 12. -- The tug WELCOME arrived this morning with the schooner CUBA, which had been ashore at Juddville, Green Bay. The vessel was jacketed and leaked so badly that two pumps were required to keep her free. She will be docked as soon as the wood in her hold, taken on after her release, is discharged.
