Description
Full Text

"Through some carelessness, which does not seem easily explained, the steamer IDLE HOUR, owned by Mr. Ziegele, ran into the CORONA early in the morning while she was lying in the harbor near the foot of Main Street.
      The CORONA was so badly injured that she could not make her trips as advertised until 6 P.M. Then there were few of the invited guests there to go Captain Blackman of the CORONA says that the owner of the IDLE HOUR promised to provide him with a boat to take the place of the CORONA for the earlier trips but did not keep his promise."
