Into the River.

Yesterday afternoon two tugmen, Capt. George N. Ferris of the tug Oneida, and "Hunkey" Scott, fireman of the rug Morey, while engaged in a playful scuffle while on the tug Wheeler, lost their balance and fell head first into the river near the foot of West Cayuga street. When "Hunkey" came up he shouted to the men on the tug: "Throw me a line; I can't swim; Upon my soul I can't." A line was thrown to him and he was pulled out, while Capt. Ferris clambered out without assistance. Both say the river water is too cold for bathing purposes.
