The steamer WINSLOW caught fire at her dock in Duluth Saturday noon from lime that had been slackened in the hold by the water. All efforts to save her proved unavailing and she was towed out into the harbor and left to burn. Thousands witnessed the sight. The vessel was valued at $35,000 and is a total loss. She was built in Cleveland in 1863.

Of the fleet the CHINA, JAPAN, IDAHO, EMPIRE STATE, BADGER STATE and WINSLOW have all suffered serious mishaps, the latter being a total loss.
