The gasoline boat, Mabel, came down from near Glenville on the recent
high water, and her pilot not being the familiar with the river in this
locality, ran her full tilt into the ferry line at this place and but for
the timely breaking of the line the boat would certainly have sunk.
A great damage was done, however as the ferry line has not been fixed and
we understand it is Mr. Hardman's intention not to repair it. Many
persons have already been greatly inconvenienced on account of having no
ferry and those who were absolutely compelled to ferry were subjected to
a long wait in the extremely cold weather, and to run a great risk in ferrying,
as the boat is too heavily to be run by hand with safety.
