Gazelle (Propeller), near collision, 17 Jul 1897

Full Text

While trying to make her way out of Buffalo Creek into the Blackwell Canal through Peck's slip, the passenger stm. GAZELLE, yesterday afternoon, had a narrow escape from a serious collision with the stm. CONESTOGA. The CONESTOGA was entering the creek through Peck's Slip when the GAZELLE was trying to leave the creek through the same channel. The boats struck each other, but the shock was so slight that it was not noticed. The GAZELLE backed up to the dock at the foot of Main St. until the CONESTOGA had cleared the slip. She then proceeded on her way.
