The little tug RED RIBBON, owned by W.H. Morris, of this city, was burned Sunday morning when two miles below St. Clair. Capt. Morris ran the tug ashore and hurried to St. Clair to obtain assistance but the officials refused to allow the steam fire engine to go outside the city. The tug is a total loss. She was insured for $1,000 which will cover half the loss.
