Full Text

Alpena, Mich., May 26. -- While moored at her dock this morning the steamer GARDEN CITY caught fire, it is believed from an overheated smokestack, and before the flames could be extinguished the engine and boiler rooms and the cabin were completely gutted. The loss amounts to $3,000, with no insurance. The fire started at 3 o'clock, and the sleeping crew had barely time to save their lives.
