TUG WARWICK MYSTERIOUSLY BURNED.
      The tug WARWICK was burned to the water's edge last night at the foot of Union Street, Niagara Falls. No one was on board when the fire started. Late Wednesday afternoon the WARWICK came down the river in charge of Capt. William E. Bradley of Buffalo, to collect the channel buoys to store until the navigation season reopens. She was caught in an ice field, stranded and deserted by the crew after they had worked for several hours trying to release her. A lighted lantern is supposed to have started the blaze. The craft was owned in Erie.
