A disappointed lot of sports, in an unlooked for predicament, were aboard the ferryboat UNION at the foot of Ferry St., at 1:30 yesterday afternoon. The boat plys between that point and Fort Erie and the sports were on their way to the running races at Fort Erie race track. The UNION was just about to put out from the dock, when Deputy U.S. Marshal Sturm appeared on board and placed a libel upon the boat, in favor of a firm of local contractors who claimed to have repaired the boilers of the boat, but have not received pay.
      The tying up of the UNION caused a big commotion on both sides of the river, among people with and without teams that were waiting to cross and while many of the people were ferried across from one side or the other in rowboats, the teams had to wait until bail was found, which was some time later in the afternoon, when the UNION resumed its trips.
