Detroit, June 20th - J.H. Hogan, who spent most of his life on the lakes, and was well known in marine circles, is dead at Port Huron after a long illness, aged seventy years. Mr. Hogan was for thirteen years engineer on the steamer Huron and then for twenty-seven years engineer on the ferry Sarnia. Later he purchased the tug J.H. Martin, afterwards selling it and acquiring an interest in the ill-fated steamer Richmond, which went down off Dunkirk some years ago. Hogan was captain of the Richmond, and on this occasion gained much praise for his heroic work, in having saved many lives.
