Mary Bell (steamer)
The Mary Bell, a steamer launched in 1869 by Capt. Robert C. Smith to run as an opposition boat on the Astoria route, was about one hundred feet long and eighteen feet beam, and was too slow and feeble to be remunerative. She fell into the hands of the United States marshal and was purchased in March, 1871, for $1,100 by N. R. Smith, who put her on the Cowlitz route in November. In 1872 she was running to Cathlamet and Oak Point from Portland in command of Capt. James Fisher, but was again sold, this time to John Marshall, who operated her as a towboat until the following year, when she became the property of George W. Hume, who used the hull for a wharf. E.
