Poht Huron, Mich., Nov. 13. Re
ports of more missing vessels came in
today but great fog banks had settled
down over Lake Huron nnd the sec
ret of the number and Identity of lost
ships and men in the recent gale was
far from being revealed. The latest
disaster reported was to the effect
that the steamer John A. McGlean,
of the Hutchinson 'Steamship com
pany, of Cleveland, had gone down.
The report came in today.
Including the McGean, six ships
may be on the bottom of Lake Huron,
and a hundred or more sailors are
almost certain to have been drowned.
The bodies of two men who sailed on
the McGean are said to have been
picked up today below Sarnia in the
St. Clair river. The steamer passed
up here at JO: 20 Sunday morning and
nothing has been heard from her since
then, until the reports came in today.
One of the bodies is said to have been
identified as that of John Cody.
Up to this morning, 27 bodies and j
wreckage of all description had been
tossed up on the Canadian t'Vore from
Point Edward, opposite here, north
to Goderich. Life belts, lifeboats and
water soaked cargo bore evidence to
indicate that the steamers Regina,
Charles S. Price, Wexford and Jaines
Carruthers were probably at the bot
tom of the lake. In the meantime, the
overturned .derelict lay in the lake a

insistent in he contrary They jdainv

the result of a collision. The bow
of the partially submerged vessel was
said to be smooth and undamaged. It

that on each attempt the stumbling
