The Tug Owners.
An Association Formed -- Less Tugs and More Money

The tug owners of this city, who have had one or two preliminary meetings with a view to so conduct the towing business at this port so as to afford some little profit, met again yesterday afternoon at the office of J.K. Post, and perfected an organization, under the name of the Oswego Towing Association, with H.A. Tuttle as President, an J.K. Post as Secretary and Treasurer.

The meeting was entirely harmonious, all of the harbor tugs being represented, and the rate of towing as announced by J.K. Post & Co. and published in the Palladium, were adopted. The association represents stock to the amount of one hundred shares, which stock is issued to the tug owners according to the capacity of the tug.

Instead of having twelve tugs rushing around the harbor and all losing money, but boats enough to do the business will be put in commission. That the association will be beneficial to the tug owners, who for the past two years have had rather dull pickings, we have no doubt.
