BOAT DRIFIT IN RIVER FROM 5:20 UNTIL 7:10 P. M. Women Scream With Excitement When the Boat Strikes Steam ship to Press Street Wharf. CAPTAIN REFUSES TO BLOW t FOR TUGS. Another unpardonable sin was com 1 mitted Monday evening when the fer ry boat Halliday, with its largest crowd of returning workers from the city, was given a forced excursion down the river on account of the tiller rope breaking just as the ferry boat I was leaving the Canal street landing. Several witnesses state that the tiller rope broke at a time when the ferry could have been held at the landing on the city side, as the acci dent occurred when the stern of the boat swung rapidly out in the stream as she was leaving the landing. It is estimated that between two hundred and fifty and three hundred people were aboard, anxious to get home to their evening meal, when by the action of the captain of the boat they were forced to remain in the river within ten minutes of two hours time. Many women and children were aboard the boat and it required the efforts of the men to keep them from becoming panicky; especially was this the case when the ferry finally col lided with a big steamship near the Press street landing, where a line was hurriedly passed to the ship and the ferry made fast. Witnesses state that after they had been out on the river for more than an hour a committee of men went up stairs and waited on the captain, to try and get him to whistle for a tug. It is stated that the captain refused to do so, stating that he had whistled for one and that a tug did not re spond. This is denied by many of the pas sengers who were interested in the ,outcome of the affair. One of the committee who had waited on the captain told the captain that if he did not whistle for the boat that the par ty himself would blow the whistle. It 4ee Pftter liestapeamwow praised of the determihation of the men on board, he allowed the whistle St be blown for a tug, which respond ed about seven o'clock and the boat was finally landed at ten minutes past seven am the Algiers side of the river. While there was great excitement on the boat among the passengers there was considerable more excite ment on the levee in Algiers, where anxious relatves, mothers and fath ers, were agerly waiting for their dear ones to find out what had hap pened to them on the rver. It had been reported in Albers that an accident had occurred on the ferry, I but of course the boat being In the middle of the river for nearly two hours it was Impossible to obtain the nature of the accident and it is for this reason that panicky conditions existed along the river,. here moth rs went up and dowa trlg to get Some tinformation rees ng thee daughter or asoar the boat. This shameful disregard for the public weltare and comfort should not only attraet the attetioa of the am tholths, but it Is a matter alo" that the public is most vitally tnterested in and should by aaited a~d con certed .sfiA toes a better service from this corporation, who are nladier ent to the welfare of the public who are forced to use their boat.

The following clipping from a Bal timore paper will be of interest to our readers: ACCIDENT DELAYS WEDDING. Bride's Train is Twenty Hours Late, But Ceremony Is Held. "A delay of twenty hours in the ar rival of the train upon which the bride-to-be was traveling nearly prov ed fatal yesterday to a romance that began in Algiers-not that in Africa but on the banks of the Miississippi, just opposite New Orleans. "While on duty in New Orleans, First Assistant Engineer Fred Korner, attached to the steamer Pontia, which arrived a few days ago from Sweden, made the acquaintanec of Miss Nim mie Buniff, of Algiers. The uncertain ties of sea life prevented the bride groom going to 'Algiers for the cere mony, so the plan was that Miss Buniff should come to Baltimore. She was scheduled to arrive at 2 o'clock yesterday morning. The wedding was to be held in the afternoon and the wedding banquet was to have followed at the Southern Hotel in the evening. "However, the train met with an ac cident and for some time it was not known just how long the delay would be. Not being able to make his plans independently of the sailing of the ship, the bridegroom was worried. But it was learned that the bride would arrive at 10 o'clock last night, so at that time the party went to the sta tion and the bride stepped off the train. Mrs. Stromberg, wife of the chief engineer of the Pontia, had come on from New York to act as chaperon. "The ceremony was performed by the Rev. Charles M. Eyster at the par sonage of the First German United Evangelical Church, 1824 East Balti more street. Mrs. Stromberg, Mr. Pringle, one of the engineer officers, and Captain Ernest Hellsten, of the Pontia, were the witnesses. After ward the nuptial dinner was served at the Southern, at which -were enter tained the officers of the Pontia, who presented the couple with silver table ware." MARC'IANTE-MANALLE.
