p.5 Will Raise Barge Davy - In A Couple of Weeks if the Weather Remains Open - It is an unusual sight to see a vessel coaling up at Swift's on such a late date as Dec. 26th, but the steam barge Hinckley, which is working to release the barge Davy (sic - Davie) of the Montreal Transportation Company's fleet, which was sunk down the river sometime ago, was at Swift's Tuesday morning.

The work is progressing well at the scene of the wreck. Sixteen automatic jacks are under the boat, as well as four large ones. These jacks will either raise the boat or break the hull in pieces. The boat has been raised a couple of feet now and if all goes well those in charge of the work say the boat will be liberated in a couple of weeks, if the river does not freeze over.
