Description
Full Text

The old steamer FAIRBANK is to be rebuilt at once. She has lain in Port Colborne ever since she was brought in here two seasons ago, after being burned to the water's edge some miles above that port. After the Carters, who bought her of the insurance companies, had unloaded her and dismantled her, they put her up for sale. Last spring she was bought by Capt. John Pringle and others, and they are just getting ready to go to work on her. Capt. Pringle says that he has turned the steamer HAYWARD over to Capt. Bates, and will have the FAIRBANK down to Tonawanda before the end of next week for a rebuild.
