Bay City Tribune. -- One year ago last July the steambarge CLEVELAND was burned to the water's edge while on Saginaw Bay going below with a tow of lumber barges. She was purchased by Captain L. L. Slyfield, who took her to St. Clair and gave her an entire rebuild, after which she was brought to Bay City and placed in the Industrial Works Slip to have her engine and boiler overhauled. Her model and dimensions have not been changed, except that her hold has been deepened to twelve feet. She cost her owner $18,000.
