Full Text

The steam tug ADMIRAL PORTER, originally from the seaboard, but latterally engaged in towing on Lake Michigan between Green Bay and Chicago, has just recently changed ownership and in future will enter the towing service in that locality. The PORTER is of the larger class of tugs, of great power, and will be commanded by Capt. Sol Rummage, a practical pilot and a life long sailor.
