Grand Island Ferry Disabled.
The GRAND ISLAND, the new steel ferry boat operating between Buffalo City Line and Grand Island, is laid up at her dock at the island with a broken propeller wheel as the result of a mix-up with the ice. She will be on her run again in a few days. In the meantime the HENRY KOEBER is making her trips for her. Running ice is causing a lot of trouble for the NIAGARA FRONTIER , operating between Buffalo and Fort Erie.
