Riverboat May "Run on Heavy Dew" in 1909


Transcribed by Norma Knotts Shaffer from microfilm of the Calhoun Chronicle dated 5/4/1909.

J.G. Oles, Supt. of the W.Va. Carbon Co., has purchased the lumber from Mac Ball and is now having it dressed at the mill for a new gasoline boat. It is Mr. Oles ambition to build a low water boat, one that will ply between Grantsville and slack water the year round, which when the river goes dry will run on a heavy dew. He is sparing no expence or labor to make such a boat, and we believe will accomplish his purpose. Such a boat would be of great benefit to Grantsville in the summer time.
