Steamer Cleveland Sank.
The old steamer Cleveland, which was recently purchased by H. W. Cook of Chicago for $2000 after having been out of commission several seasons, sprung a leak off Waukegan and filled with water. She was loaded with hemlock lumber from Frankfort and that kept
her afloat. The steamer Edward Buckley towed the nearly submerged steamer behind the north breakwater at Chicago, and the several powerful tugs essayed to pull her inside. She grounded at the harbor entrance, however, in such a manner as to nearly obstruct the channel, and had to be abandoned for the night. A considerable portion of the Cleveland's deckload was lost overboard after she waterlogged.
Tugs on Monday pulled the waterlogged steamer into Illinois Central slip C at Chicago. Steam pumps freed the craft of water and after the lumber cargo, has been discharged she will be repaired.
