John II. Peterson, who purchased the
wrecked steamer deo. w. Elder, says
the actual work of raising her will be-
sin at an early date.' Mr. Peterson's
first plans for the rescue of the vessel
were based on the idea of raising her
by means of barrel shaped pontoons,
which would be sunk and fastened to
the hull of the wreck and then pump
ed out. It was thought that by this
means the Elder could be essily raised,
but it has now been demonstrated that
the cost of the construction of tha
pontoons would be so excessive as to
make the plan impracticable, and that
the method of work ha been aband
oned. The present plan provide for the
raising of the wreck by barges with
the aid of the two pontoon now built.
