p.5 May Abandon Work On Davie

If It Is Found Impossible To Raise Her, Barge Will Be Blown Up

Much Trouble Has Been Experienced In The Work

Work on the raising of the sunken hull of the Davie opposite St. Lawrence Park seems to have been indefinitely abandoned. The work of raising the craft was begun several weeks ago by the Calvin Salvage Co., but owing to several reverses, was abandoned. Later the work was renewed and it was expected that the hull would soon be raised. However, the progress of the work was again checked and it was decided to abandon the work indefinitely. Should it later be found that it will be impossible to raise her, the boat will most probably be taken into the middle of the river and blown up. The boat is owned by the Montreal Transportation Company.
