PATTERSON WANTS DAMAGES FOR LOSS OF HIS LAUNCH.
      Action to recover $775 damages for injuries to his boat said to have been sustained August 1913, when it collided with another craft, was filled in United States District Court yesterday.
      H. I. Sackett, owner of the boat H. I. S., is made defendant. Patterson's boat is the FIREFLY. Patterson declares the FIREFLY was sunk near the Launch Club, Niagara River, when H. I. S. suddenly changed its direction and cut across its bows, but could not clear without a collision. He also holds the defendants launch did not stop, but continued on while the FIREFLY's occupants were thrown into the water when the craft sank. They were rescued by boats which put out from the Launch Club, it is said.
