The steamer Edward Buckley, Captain Gnewuch, was docked at the shipyard, Friday. She underwent some general repairs and recalking. The Buckley was recently bumped into by some big freighter, which hit her a glancing blow on the starboard quarter, doing about $500 worth of damage. The rail, stanchions and in and outboard stringers for a distance of 30 feet will have to be renewed as a result. Only temporary repairs were made on the steamer and she left port Sunday afternoon for Green Bay to load hardwood lumber at the Murphy mill. The Buckley expects to get in a couple of more trips before laying up.

[c. 3]

Capt. Chas. Gnewuch, master of the steambarge Edward Buckley, Mnistee, Mich., favored The Advocate with a brief call Saturday while in port. Capt. Gnewuch believes that it is better for a man to wear out than to rust out, and he accordingly keeps busy on ship board during the season of navigation. He stated that Capt. Peter Marsh had tried shore life for a year or two, but found it altogether too tame and monotonous, and during the past season was in command of a tug attending dredge up at the head of Lake Superior.
