April 18--The Pluck was at Abercrombie, Captain Alexander Griggs [?] was going there from Grand Forks. April 19--The Alsop under Captain Bruce Griggs made its first voyage downriver of the season. H.E. Manning was the mate, Will Griggs was the pilot, J.T. King was the engineer, and O. Penniston was the clerk. June 4--The Alsop pulled into Grand Forks with three barges loaded with wheat and oak timber from Drayton. The trip took forty- eight hours; a previous trip had taken ninety-six. The Red River had worn a deeper channel and the government dredge was also working the channel. June 11--The Pluck was stranded by low water above Fargo. One source says the Pluck was dismantled that year, but others claim it was Spread onto crust. Pour milk into a large bowl. Add pudding mix.

C. Gardner, Jr. dismantled in 1886 at Grand Forks. On August 9 the following list was placed in the newspapers on the number of pounds hauled by Red River steamboats in between the international boundary and Moorhead [I have also included a list from 1876 in brackets which includes some freight hauled by flatboats]: [1872--five million (est.); 1873--23,613,136; 1874--37,626,200; 1875--76,078,680]; 1879--35,718,731; 1880--43,201,505; 1881--53,114,861; 1882--63,303,627; 1883- -50,627,951; 1884-- 53,091,272; 1885-- 46,085,444; 1886-- 21,013,659. By September 20 the Duluth & Manitoba branch of the Northern Pacific Railway had laid tracks through Drayton. By October 13 navigation on the Red was almost closed due to low water. The Red River Transportation Co. had hauled 210,000 bushels of wheat and 110 carloads of lumber and merchandise so far that season. October 19--The Selkirk came into Grand Forks from Dillon, seventeen miles north with two barges load with 5000 bushels of wheat, which it unloaded at the Manitoba elevator in East Grand Forks. Dillon was the only port open to navigation because of the low water. On October 25 the Selkirk was pulling away from the Manitoba elevator when it collided with the central pier of the Northern Pacific Railway bridge. The boat swung around and struck a pontoon which caused a hole and the steamboat began to sink. The crew attempted to run it into the boatyard, but the vessel went down close to the Walker Mill near the east side opposite Riverside Park. The river amidships was eight feet deep, but at the bow and stern only two feet deep. The boiler and the engine removal was begun, but because of the age of the old boat its useful days were over. The Selkirk was built in 1871-1872 by Alexander Griggs, who took the pilot house and placed it on his lawn as a summer house and playhouse for his children. 2 - 12 Packs of Coke Products Only $8.00 m~ PLAY the North Dakota Lottery HERE!
