Gathered in the Local Harbor. The scow-schooner Mary L. was totally destroyed by fire in this bay Saturday afternoon. The vessel was lying in the mud on the west shore of the bay, half way between the city and south end of the canal, not having been placed in commission this season. Some boys who occupied the abandoned craft as a rendezvous no doubt set fire to the craft accidentally or for the excitement of the thing. The Mary L. registered 30 tons, was 62 feet long, 17 feet beam, and was built in 1895. She was the property of Capt. Chris Braunadorf of Clay Banks.
