Experienced A Terrible Storm.

Duluth, Oct. 10th - The steamer John Owen was in a terrible cyclonic storm Sunday between Whitefish Point and Keweenaw. The enormous sea carried away most of her starboard bow, shifted the pilot house four feet, and disabled the engines so that the vessel was nearly helpless for ten hours, being able to make but three miles an hour. The crew were all made seasick by the terrible rolling of the vessel, and there were nine inches of water in the cabin by the seas coming on board.

p.5 Incidents of the Day - Anthony Malone, after a long and faithful service in the employment of the Calvin company, Garden Island, has retired from the services of that firm and will hereafter live a retired life.

The passenger steamer City of Parry Sound was totally destroyed by fire on Tuesday at her wharf. The steamer arrived from Sault Ste. Marie on Monday and most of her cargo had been removed. The fire started in the boiler room and got beyond control. The steamer was valued at $80,000.
