STEAM BARGE ON FIRE.
      NEGAUNEE Considerably Damaged This Morning at Gratwick - Origin of Fire Unknown.
North Tonawanda, Nov. 17. - The steam barge NEGAUNEE was partially destroyed by fire this morning at the Wisconsin Lumber Company docks at Gratwick. Capt. L. C. Cole was awakened about 5 o'clock with volumes of smoke pouring into his cabin. The tar ropes were burning on the upper deck; the volumes of smoke indicated the fire had obtained considerable headway. The sailors were aroused and began to fight the fire. They were not successful till a great deal of damage was done. The origin of the fire is not known.
