-The Burning of the Propeller Akron - It occurred midway between Clayton and Alexandria Bay, and the flames were visible from both places. The Akron was at a dock wooding en route to Toronto. The fire caught in the "fire hold," and when discovered was under such rapid headway that the passengers, numbering about 50, and crew barely escaped with their lives. No freight could be taken off and the propeller was cut loose from the dock and floated across the river.

p.3 Imports - 17, 18.
