STEAMER MEACHAM MEETS MORE MISFORTUNE.
      The new steamer DANIEL B. MEACHAM has met with more trouble according to dispatches from Duluth. The vessel got off the grounding on Passage Island, near Port Arthur last week and has since bumped the Lamborn Avenue bridge at Duluth, putting that structure out of commission and trying up street car traffic for about two hours, according to newspaper reports. It is said the boat escaped without serious injury.

The steamer D. B. MEACHAM, which was ashore in Lake Superior, is in drydock at Ecorse. Survey of the wrecked boat has not been completed, but it is said that it will take about four weeks to make repairs on her. That means the steamer will no do any more business this season.
