Full Text

The steamer JAMES SHRIGLEY of Dunkirk, lying in the Erie Basin, was discovered on fire by James Glennor of the Linseed Oil Works shortly after 4 o'clock this morning.
      Chief Engineer Charles Roe, Mate Christ Edwardson and wheelsman Moran were asleep on the boat at the time and were awakened by Glennor.
      The fire tug put the fire out, but not before between $6,000 and $7,000 damage had been done.
      Barber, Skully & Co., of Dunkirk own the steamer. She was being laid up for the winter at this port.
