Five Men Supposed to Be Lost
MARINETTE, Wis., Jan. 16.óNothing has been heard of the fishermen, who were swept out into the sea on an ice floe, and at least five are supposed to be lost. Reports are conflicting. A number of the men are supposed to have reached Green Island and stayed there during the night. It is said several landed on Chamberís island. Grave fears are felt for the safety of Theodore Johnson of Sturgeon Bay, formerly vice president of the Menominee River Shingle Manufacturing company. Mr. Johnson started from Menominee to skate to Sturgeon Bay and nothing has been heard of him since. Inquiries are being sent out all along the east shore, and it is hoped he reached Egg Harbor.
