p.1 To Value The Boat - Detroit, March 5th - George Plunkett, Cobourg, Ont., owner of the burned steamer Strathmore, formerly the noted Gordon Campbell, together with representatives of the insurance companies interested and officers of the boat, are here to determine the value of the boat. After running on the rocks at Michipicoten, Ont., last fall, the Strathmore took fire and was completely destroyed. The only insurance carried on the hull was that against loss by fire, and the question to be settled is the condition and value of the boat after she was stranded at Michipicoten and the value of her hull before the fire started.
