Detroit Tribune (Detroit, MI), May 26, 1886
- Full Text
The schooner Elgin, a Canadian craft, after 12 years of service, lies moored at Chicago, apparently without an owner. Late last fall she was badly wrecked at Racine, costing nearly $3,000 to release her. The parties who formerly owned her do not feel disposed to pay this claim, and the insurance company will have none of her.
