Narrow loser of a famous race against the City of Erie on 4 June 1901 between Cleveland and Erie. Nevertheless, she was probably the fastest ship on the Great Lakes.
On 8 December 1927 a powerful winter storm tore her loose from her moorings on the Detroit River and sent her down river with no one on board to collide with the Belle Isle Bridge. She survived this event, but then on 18 June 1936 while on a moonlight excursion with 1,400 passengers aboard, she struck a submerged rock at the mouth of Sugar Island Channel. With full speed ahead she managed to reach the Brunner-Mond Co. coal wharf at Amherstburg, Ontario. The passengers and crew got safely ashore before she settled in 18 feet of water. Salvage efforts were unsuccessful and she was scrapped shortly after.
