Chicago, May 15. -- Wrecking Master Sinclair telegraphed from Alpena today that he expects the AMERICAN UNION will be launched off the reef at Thompson's Harbor tomorrow. The weather today is not favorable for wrecking operations. It is feared that the schooner will be a constructive total loss at best.
