p.2 Resurrected Steamyacht's Wheel - Capt. Thomas Clancy, who keeps constant vigil at Swift's wharf, was lucky in fishing up with his pike pole a brass screw wheel lost off the steamyacht Edith, as she approached the wharf early last September. The wheel will bring a good reward. Stories have been told of the exploits of the man with a hoe, but the latest subject for the spring poets is about the man with the pike pole.
