ABERCORN BURNED.
_______

Goderich, Ont., September 5. - The steamer Abercorn, which was lying at the dock here unloading a cargo of coal, was burned early today. The fire was caused by the explosion of a signal lamp. The burnt boat was owned by Capt. Willoughby and Capt. Baxter, and was insured for $4,000. The Abercorn was an old-timer and for many years had been engaged in carrying lumber and coal between Lake Huron and Lake Erie.
