The propellor Lake Michigan is in the government dry-dock receiving repairs. It will take a couple of days to complete the work. A small hole was discovered in the bow, where a couple of new planks will be required. Another will be placed in the bottom. Some caulking will also be done.

The total damage to propellor and cargo will amount to less than $4,000. The cargo is insured, but the propellor is not, at least, it is only insured against total loss. Hence the owners will have to bear the expense which will amount to probably $1,500.
