      Efforts are now being made to float the big excursion steamer CITY OF GRAND RAPIDS, which has been ashore on Crystal Island in the Erie Basin since last fall. Provided the boat is successfully floated she will be used in the passenger business this summer between Cleveland and Rondeau on the Canadian side of the lake.

      Two tugs worked all day yesterday in an effort to float the big passenger steamer CITY OF GRAND RAPIDS, ashore on Crystal Island in the Erie Basin, but were unsuccessful. The forward part of the boat is resting on hulk of the excursion steamer WILLIAM HARRISON, which was burned and sunk several years ago, and it is now believed that before the GRAND RAPIDS can be hauled off into deep water, divers may have to be sent down into the Basin to remove the obstruction. If the boat is floated she will be used in the passenger business this summer at Cleveland.
