"In 1871, a new entry joined the growing competition for the White River transportation trade. Captain Simon Peter Randolph had been active in boating on the Duwamish and Black Rivers and Lake Washington since 1868, and was responsible for dredging much of the lower White River, clearing it of many logs and snags."

At first the round trip took four days, gradually he dredged the river clearing it of snags. He also cleared the Black River between its outlet and the Duwamish River.
