THE ERIE BELLE

Mr. Wherry of Odette & Wherry, left yesterday for Kincardine to look after matters connected with the explosion of the tug Erie Belle. He telegraphed back last evening that the body of the second engineer had been found. Mr. Odette, when called upon by a reporter yesterday, could tell nothing about the accident more than had been published. The Erie Belle was built at Walkerville by Captain Jenkin in 1862, was rebuilt in 1878, rated A2½, registered 292 tons, and was valued at $9,000. She was insured in the Boston Marine for $7,000 against total loss. Mr. Odette thinks he will purchase a tug to take her place.
