p.3 Big Tug Bill - Capt. Leslie has returned from Detroit where he has been looking after the sch. W.R. Taylor. Bills were presented for 15 days service, at the rate of $300 per day for the tug alone, for steam pump wages and superintendence an extra $3900 was charged, making a total of $8400 (sic). The vessel is now at Northport, Mich. The owners have abandoned her so that the Insurance Companies can settle the question of salvage. There was much grumbling at Detroit when a Canadian tug asked $150 per day for a similar service, but when an American strikes a bonanza $560 per day is a reasonable sum.
