It is understood that C. A. Coon, who projected the ill-fated expedition to recover the cargo of the Pewabic, had closed an arrangement with Mrs. Pelkey, the widow of the unfortunate diver who lost his life in the hazard, by which he secures, after a term of years, of the patent diving apparatus which Pelkey had invented. The contract is rumored to be as follows: Coon pays Pelkey's heirs $200 every three months for ten years, at which time he has an option to purchase the patent outright for $10,000.
