p.1 Went Up In Flames - Kincardine, July 9th - At three o'clock this morning the harbor light, situated on the end of the north pier, was struck by lightning and burned. Upwards of 100 gallons of coal oil was in the building and the efforts of the firemen were unavailing. The steamer Pittsburg was unable to enter the harbor during the progress of the fire and landed her passengers by means of the yawl boats.



Craig's wharf: steamer Persia from Toronto tonight.

Crawford's wharf: schooner Acacia, from Charlotte with coal.

M.T. company elevator: tug Hall cleared for Montreal with two barges grain-laden.
