The Canadian steamer LOUIS SHICKLUNA was sent to the bottom of Lake Erie off Long Point Friday by collision with the steamer TECUMSEH. She was bound for Cleveland without cargo. When about 3 miles off Long Point, the TECUMSEH, which was bound down from Lake Superior, struck the SHICKLUNA abreast of the boiler room. It was just enough time for the crew to launch the boat and get away, They were picked up Saturday morning by the TECUMSEH.
