Steamer EDDY Stuck Fast. -- There was a jam in the creek near the Watson Elevator late yesterday afternoon. The steamer SELWYN EDDY was trying to get into the Evans slip without assistance of a tug and got stuck. Navigation was blocked for some time and as a result several excursion boats were detained from getting outside on time.
