THE W. B. KERR RAMMED BY STEAMER BUFFALO.
      Duluth, September 5. -- In a collision between the steamer W. B. KERR of the Tonawanda Steamship Company's fleet and the steamer BUFFALO of the Western Transit fleet, the KERR sustained damages estimated at $10,000. The BUFFALO coming from Elevator B, was making a turn in the channel when her nose hit the forward end of the KERR. The captain attributes the accident to the sharp current. The forward compartment of the KERR filled rapidly and she is now at the Superior Shipyard. The BUFFALO was damaged considerably and it is said that she will be compelled to put in at the shipyards before continuing down the lakes.
