      About 11:00 last night the new yacht CYGNET ran into the tug MARY E. PIERCE, of Hand's Line and jammed her jibboom into the tug's pilot house, breaking the forward windows of the house, smashing the wheel standard and throwing the whole apparatus out of order. Capt. Mallon of the PIERCE, narrowly escaped injury. The damage to the yacht could not be learned. The wind was blowing a gale at the time of the collision.
