Full Text

The steambarge Edward Buckley arrived in port at day break Monday morning, breaking her way through the ice to the Rieboldt & Wolter dry dock. The Buckley was under the command of Capt. Fred Gunderson, with Frank Heffron as chief engineer and Wm. Mackay as assistant. She put in the winter at Sheboygan, and as soon as she could get out of there, came up the lake to enter the local yards for considerable repair work. No difficulty was experienced until after passing the bridge, where the ice had not yet been broken, but she managed to get through without much trouble. Her coming was the scene of unusual activity around the dry dock, as she broke up the ice around there and enabled the tug Lorena, Capt. J. A. Tufts, to make her way out after considerable buffeting around. With open water and several tugs out, it is only a matter of a few days until the entire bay will be opened up.
