Wrecks and Heavy Losses.
The schooner HELENA has been abandoned by Hanna &, Co., as a total loss. She was coal-laden and up-bound when her steamer the HAVANA exchanged proper signals, with the MARISKA in Little Mud lake. The suction from the JAY GOULD, passing at the time, ported the schooner and she collided with the MARISKA Although the latter was under check the HELENA was cut to the cat head and sunk in 20 feet of water. A sailor named Matti was drowned. The HELENA was built by Quayle & Martin in 1874, was valued at $30,000 and insured for $25,000.
