THE BARGE MARY ANN LEYDEN WILL BE RAISED FROM BEACH

Patrick M. Patterson, of Queenstown, Ont.. with his crew of four men, who deserted the barge Mary Ann Leyden that went ashore off Grand View Beach, four miles West of Charlotte last October, returned to Charlotte yesterday by rail. They have commenced the work of making the necessary repairs to put the boat afloat and put her into service.

The Mary Ann Leyden has remained on the sandy bottom of the beach during the winter without any apparent additional damage. The boat is light, her cargo having been removed last fall, and the water has raised at this point about eight inches during the past two weeks, although the boat is still 40 inches lower than when she went ashore. It is expected, however, that the boat will be released without damage.
