Full Text

Kenosha, Wis., Nov. 30. -- The three masted schooner HANS CROCKER, on her way from Little Sturgeon Bay to Chicago, sprung a leak at 1 o'clock last night near Fox Point. While the other hands were working the pumps the Captain and cook jettisoned her deck load. But the water continuing to gain, acting Captain Griffiths undertook to make this harbor. The vessel struck bottom and went ashore south of the harbor piers at about 5 o'clock this morning. The Captain and crew got safely ashore in the small boat at 7 a. m. The CROCKER is fast breaking up, and will prove a total loss.
