p.3 Steamer Burned - Buffalo, Sept. 19th - An unidentified freight steamer, thought to be the Strassinger, or the Wiley M. Egan, was burned to the water's edge in Lake Erie, about twenty-five miles west of Long Point early this morning. It is thought the crew escaped, either in a small boat or on freighters going up the lake, in company with the burned steamer.
