Capt. Hinckley Seeks New Boat
Looking for Small Steamer to Continue Business

Captain A.R. Hinckley, owner of the steamer Hinckley which went to pieces on Stony Point during Sunday's storm, after the steamer had been beached last week, when she sprung a leak, is seeking another small cargo steamer, with which to continue his shipping business, and Tuesday was reported on Lake Erie investigating and looking over several steamers that will answer his purpose. he has been for many years a successful operator of small light draft steamers carrying coal to points down the St. Lawrence River and in the Dominion of Canada, and it is expected will soon have another ship in commission.

The steamer Hinckley is a total loss, although later it may be possible to salvage the engine and perhaps the boiler and some of the fittings as they are in but a few feet of water, if not too badly damaged by the storm.
