Toledo, May 20 - Whether the city or George Bell, owner of the boat will pay for the moving of the abandoned steamer RUST from the Wheeling & Lake Erie railroad bridge Sunday night is a question which probably will be taken to the courts for settlement. Bell purchased the old boat some time ago, removed her machinery and moored her near the bridge. She was not properly fastened, and Harbormaster Page learned that the boat swung so that she interfered with the bridge draw.
      Page notified Bell, and instructed him to move the boat, but Bell said he didn't want the vessel, and after telling Page the city could have the boat and stated that he would not move her. The harbormaster hired a tug and had the boat moved and properly anchored. Bell will not pay the bill. City Soliciter Schreiber says the city can collect from him and that suit will probably be filed.
