'Twas Skillful Work - Mariners speak in high terms of praise at the skill displayed by the Calvin company in releasing the stern section of the schooner Minnewaska from her dangerous position on an island in the rapids near Cardinal. It required daring and skill, as the elements to be overcome were tremendous. To make matters worse, the steamer Hamilton, in running the rapids Wednesday night, collided with one of the hawsers attached to the Minnewaska, and broke it.
