      Nels. A. Peterson, captain of the local life-saving station, has brought suit against the owners of the steamer Helena to recover damages in the sum of $10,000 as the result of a serious scalding received on May 21, 1891. The HELENA was lying opposite the life-saving station and Capt. Peterson, in company with Capt. William Lund of the steamer GEORGE H. DYER, left the dock in a small boat to pass around her stern when a jet of hot water and steam was ejected from the discharge pipe inflicting injuries upon Peterson which laid him up until about two months ago, but only slightly injured Lund. The case will be tried shortly.
