Description
Full Text

The old schooner A. B. C. F. M. has been taken out of drydock and is now moored a short distance from Broadway Bridge. She has been out of commission since July 1900. She sunk in the Kinnickinnie river, having sprung a leak. This was repaired, but it is probable she will be dismantled and abandoned.

A sand scow has pumped the water out of the old schooner A. B. C. F. M. and she is once more afloat. The schooner is unfit for further service in the open waters of the lake and therefore a good canditate for the Jones Island beach.
