gals of Sunday, and tbe Ice rushed
Into tho St Clair {lvor, completely

4# miles am hour Sunday afternoon,
the strain became too greet and It

between here and Sarnia, Monday
morning, he believed the Conger,
which to tho largoet of tho ferry boots

to make her way across. So thick
woa tho Ice in the river that she be
came stalled when about half way
across and many of the passengers
attempted to welk to shore, bat were
forced to return to the boat as the
Ice in some places would not bear
their weight. After six hours of strug
gling In ths les fluids, ths crow of
tho boat succeeded in breaking a way
through tho Ice. and tbe Conger
again returned to hor dock on thto
•Ido. No further attempt was mads
Monday to reopen traffic on tbs ferry
line.
