Full Text

Capt. John Yattaw of Chicago complains that one dark stormy night some parties unknown, cut the lines of his ship CLEOPATRA and that she drifted out of the harbor on the lake; that she went ashore near Michigan City, and is now a total wreck. She measured 67.96 tons, and her Official Number was 126655. Her value, he states is $15,000. The captain charges that his craft was purposely destroyed, and says "the Clan-na-Gael did the work."
