Full Text

Sturgeon Bay, May 21 - While passing through the canal this evening Car Ferry TRANSFER NO. 1 in tow of the tug J.C. PERRETT, collided with the United States dredging plant. Holes were stove in each of the two dump scows, and the dredge was also damaged considerably. The ferry was not damaged much, and proceeded on her way to Chicago. The accident was caused by having too long a tow line between the PERRETT and the ferry. The damage to the dredging plant will foot up to about $1,000.
