J.G. Oles, Supt. of the W.Va. Carbon Co., has purchased the lumber from
Mac Ball and is now having it dressed at the mill for a new gasoline boat.
It is Mr. Oles ambition to build a low water boat, one that will ply between
Grantsville and slack water the year round, which when the river goes dry
will run on a heavy dew. He is sparing no expence or labor to make
such a boat, and we believe will accomplish his purpose. Such a boat
would be of great benefit to Grantsville in the summer time.
