THE "GOV. MORTON" ON THE ROCKS.
Police Boat Went Aground, and Capt. Pritchard Has Suspended Pilot Bohn.
The patrol boat GOV. MORTON met with its first accident yesterday afternoon in Buffalo River, near the foot of Hamburg street. The boat was making its usual rounds when it ran on the rocks near the rolling mills, and for a time it was thought to be badly damaged. The efforts of the crew to release the boat were fruitless, and the tug DAVIS was sent for. After an hour's work the boat was pulled off and taken to the dry docks.
Capt. Pritchard investigated the accident and this afternoon suspended Pilot Bohn. The captain is of the belief that had he been strictly attending to business the accident would not have happened. Bohn will be tried by the Police Commissioners at their meeting Monday morning.
