BIG PRICE ASKED FOR BOAT.
The old wooden steamer C.W. JACOBS, which makes frequent visits to the port of Buffalo and was formerly known at the CITY OF PARIS, was some time ago bought for $2,100, and her present owners were recently offered $45,000 for her. They now demand $65,000 for the old boat.
The JACOBS made $9,000 last spring. She was sailed by Capt. Edward Evans, who died recently.
