Chicago. He has been ill for a long

FERRY T. J. ROBINSON
OUT OF WINTER QUARTERS
The ferry T. J. Robinson steamed
up this morning and this afternoon
came up from winter quarters at the
Kahlke boat yard with Capt. M. L.
Henderson at the wheel. The whistle
blown for the landing was: the signal
that started a crowd for the levee
on both sides of the river and many
were the comments upon the im
provement that has been wrought in
the familiar craft since she gave way
to the ice in December.
The hull is almost entirely new
and the other parts have been over
hauled and repaired. The exterior is
bright and fresh with a new coat of
paint. She will be provided shortly
with an electric sign.
A landing was effected on this side
of the river and the dock was drawn
into the water and the wings adjust
ed preparatory to beginning regular
trips between this city and Daven
port. The big excursion boat, the City of
Providence, which carries more peo
ple than any other boat of its class
on the Mississippi and which was pre
vented from coming this far north
last summer by the low water, will
be here this summer if the stag of
the river permits. It is planned by
the owners to make two trips to this
city to take out excursions, once in
June and again in August.
Capt. George Winans has purelmscd
the Zalus Davis from the owner, Capt.
William Davis, and will operate her.
