p.8 A Disastrous Season - Detroit, Nov. 21st - With the close of navigation still a month off, and the worst of weather still to come, the statistics of loss of lives and vessels already this season are appalling. Over fifty ships were destroyed, and scores of others badly damaged in the storms, while the loss of life totals up 128. The monetary loss will be over five million dollars, making the season of 1905 one of the most disastrous in the history of the lakes.
