Tugs and Officers

The Oswego Towing Association has appointed officers to the following boats: - Crusader, H.C. Manwaring, captain; C.P. Morey, James Pappa, captain, George Cozzens, engineer; F.D. Wheeler, C.W. Ferris, captain, James Carney, engineer; Major Dana, John Redford, captain, Frank Hoffman, engineer; J.S. Spinney, W. Worden, captain, J. Martin, engineer; Steve H. Lyons, T. Donovan, captain, J. Donovan, engineer; Wm. Avery, P. Tivnian, captain, D. Donovan, engineer. Commodore Thomas Crimmins has been appointed superintendent and collector from vessels and John Dougherty collector from canal boats.

The May Queen will run outside of the association and will be officered by Al. Thompson, captain, and John Thompson, engineer. The Alanson Sumner, which is also outside of the association, will, as usual, confine herself to lake towing. The old veteran, Captain Thomas Dobbie, will commend her with William Bishop and engineer. Captain Cole will command the steam barge Ellsworth again this summer.

It will be seen that fewer boats will be in commission this year than last, but should the necessities of commerce demand more steam power in the harbor, the Oneida, maria Melvin and C.W. Morse can be fitted out without delay.
