p.5 Broke The Walking Beam - The str. Pierrepont, while crossing to Garden Island today, broke her walking beam and is laid up. Another steamer will be put on the route tomorrow. It is hoped that the Pierrepont will be able to resume her trips on Monday.


Marine Paragraphs.

Joseph Deven and Willard Stevens will leave tomorrow for Oswego to join the schr. Manzanilla.

The schr. Comanche will be taken off Point Peninsula and her hull repaired at Oswego.

A. Campbell, Lakeport, has purchased the schr. Flora Carveth. She is intended for the upper lake trade.

The prop. Myles is again rising to the surface. She is still listed, however, and some marine men think she may "trip."

The Hero will, this season, be under command of C.H. Nicholson, captain; with W. Bloomfield first mate; R.J. Hooper, purser; and James Stewart, engineer.
