Our Inland Marine. The Washington Island tug Liberty was in port several days the first of the week, during which time her engineer, Chas. Allen made some needed repairs to the engine, the crank pin of which ran hot at times. She was also given a new siphon. The Liberty did not get away from here until late Tuesday afternoon, having been detained by the heavy westerly blow of that day. She towed the fishing smack purchased from Milton Benson by Valentine Irr on her way back. Capt. Irr will henceforth fish out of Washington harbor on his own hook. The Liberty is the only tug that fishes out of Washington Harbor, the tugs Truscott, Hill, Welcome and Unknown all operate out of Detroit Harbor.
