TO REPAIR THE OLYMPIC

New-York Tribune

Big White Star Boat Going Into Drydock at Belfast
---
When the White Star steamship Olympic sailed yesterday morning it was
announced that she would land her passengers at Plymouth and proceed direct
to Belfast for the purpose of replacing the propeller blade which she lost
on the voyage over. Those of her two hundred passengers whose destination is
Cherbourg or Southampton will probably be picked up by the American Line
steamship New York, which also sailed yesterday and will reach Plymouth a
day later than the Olympic.

This is the third time that the world's biggest liner has been sent to
drydock since she was put in service, two years ago. Last summer she was in
collision with the British cruiser Hawke, just outside Southampton, and on
another occasion she struck a submerged wreck in the English Channel. The
repairs in the present instance will probably not take much over a day.
