The day was spent in a cruise up the

trip was begun after nightfall, the
pilot of the boat keeping close to the
Pennsylvania shore on the run down
the river. When a point was reached
near Andalusia, the Columbia suddenly
j loomed up In the darkness. Fortesque

just a moment too late. The big
steamer struck the launch squarely in
the middle and cut it in half, throwing
all the occupants into the water.
A terrible shriek went up as the
boats struck, which almost caused a
panic among the passengers on the To

thrown overboard to those in the wa
ter and a boat was quickly lowered.
When the rowboat reached the spot,
only four persons could lu» found in the
darkness. It Is believed that several
of the victims were crushed by the
puddle wheels on the Columbia.
