Steamer Bavarian Burned
Fourteen Lives Supposed to be Lost

Bowmanville, Ont., Nov. 5. A steamer was seen to be on fire about four miles off Port Darlington, about 8 o'clock to-night, and continued to burn until the vessel was apparently consumed, the burning hulk drifting out in the lake. No particulars have been received, but all available boats at this port have bone to the rescue. A tug was sen going to the burning steamer from Newcastle.

Since the above was in type we have received the following special telegram from Kingston:

The steamer Bavarian of the Canadians Navigation Line, was burned last night on Lake Ontario off Oshawa, and it is thought fourteen lives were lost. Two boats containing twenty two persons er put off from the burning steamer and reached the shore in safety. Fourteen persons were left on the steamer and unless they were taken off by some vessel are lost. Among the missing are Mrs. Sibbald, of Brockville, Miss Ireland of Kingston, Captain Carmichael, the commander, Spence the steward, and the first engineer. The steamer was bound down from Hamilton to Montreal
