North King (Steamboat), C96911, collision, 1 Jul 1891

Full Text

Last week the steamer NORTH KING (formerly the NORSEMAN) and MAYNARD had a slight collision on the river. The officers of the MAYNARD claim that the KING's officers took no notice of the MAYNARD's whistles while the NORTH KING officials maintain that no whistles were blown and that the accident was not due to any negligence on their part but solely to the fact that the MAYNARD having approached too close to the larger vessel was sucked into her wake and bumped. The damage done was slight.
