EXCITING RIVER TRIP.
R. & O. Steamer's Steering Gear Went Wrong.
The passengers of the Richelieu and Ontario Navigation company's steamer, the Rapids King, had a rather exciting trip Sunday night. The ship did its best to travel by land more than once below the Coteau rapids.
"She must have run amuck," said one of the passengers, telling the story. "Though the pilot did his best it was impossible to keep her head straight, and finally he refused to take her down the Cedar rapids, and we were all landed at Coteau du Lac, driven to River Rouge and brought in to Montreal by train. Some of the passengers stayed on the boat all night, however, and came down this morning."
The company stated that the steering gear was not working well at Coteau du Lac, and the boat was held there until morning.
