The W.K. Muir On Fire - The propeller tugboat W.K. Muir, owned by Capt. Harbottle, of Hamilton, was set on fire at an early hour on Saturday morning. By cutting holes in the deck, with the aid of buckets and a hose leading from the force-pump, water was applied, and the fire was checked. The machinery of the vessel was not reached, but the damage otherwise will amount to about $400, which is uncovered by insurance. [Hamilton Spectator]
