A collision occurred at Harbor Beach in Lake Huron yesterday between the steamers STEEL KING and MANCHESTER. There was a heavy fog on at the time of the collision. Both vessels were heavily loaded. The MANCHESTER rammed the STEEL KING abreast of No. 7 hatch, cutting a bad hole in the plating.
      It was necessary for the STEEL KING to go into repairs at Harbor Beach, while the MANCHESTER proceeded on her way. The STEEL KING is captained by William F. Delany of Buffalo.
