The Gardle Eastman, a towboat and one of the best known crafts on -the upper Mis sissippi, sank Monday afternoon at 4 o'clock In 15 feet of' water, when a knag was encountered "in East chute, Bto miles north of Qulncy. The boat went down ranldlv. and in half an hour was under; water' that extended up to', hr boiler deck. All" the members of the; crew escaped and were later i brought to Qulncy in a gasoline launch. The Gardle. as she Is known to livermen. Is owned by Captain A. V. fetter, a government contractor. She Is one of .the oldest boats on the river and for-years has plied between St Louis and Burlington. During the greater part of the last two summers fehe has worked In the Immediate vi cinity of Qulncy, where Captain Fet ter has fulfilled contracts-for building dykes. Among rivermen the Gardle has the reputation of being one of the fastest towboats.
