      In releasing the schooner QUEEN CITY from the Canadian shore near the "Dummy," Lake Erie, with only a few day's work Capt. C.E. Benham of Cleveland did a good job, of wrecking last week. A channel 1,000 feet long had to be dredged to the stranded boat by working the wheels of the tugs engaged on the work.
