Believed To Be From Ill-Fated Bannockburn.

A special from St. Catharines, Ont., says:

"A large piece of steel, evidently from the bottom of a vessel, has been found in the new Welland canal, which, it is believed, solves the mysterious loss of the steamer Bannockburn with all on board in Lake Superior in the fall of 1903.

The Bannockburn was the only steel vessel to pass through the canal, and it is believe that the piece of hull was lost on the steamer's last trip, weakening the Bannockburn so that she foundered on Lake Superior."
