The Michigan Broken In Two.

Chicago, July 30th - The big schooner Michigan, which has been unloading coal at Erie street, broke in two. The coal unloaders had been working on her all day and had her well emptied out amidships, but had left coal in her ends, although the captain had protested against this method of unloading, saying it would break his boat in two. The Michigan had three steel arches on each side. The middle one is broken on each side and pulled down on the other. The planking on her sides is pulled apart, and on the decks it is either pulled apart or broken in two. Repairs will cost several thousand dollars.
