      Milwaukee, Wis., Jan. 7 - The Milwaukee Tug Boat Line management kept tab on the steamers HELENA and VERONICA during the past season with this result: The HELENA traveled 25,600 miles on an average coal consumption of 200 pounds per mile, or 10 miles per ton of coal. The VERONICA traveled 25,120 miles on an average of 155 pounds of coal per mile, or 13 miles for every ton of coal consumed. The HELENA carries nearly as much again as the VERONICA. Her engine is a triple expansion, with Scotch type boilers, while that of the VERONICA is a fore-and-aft compound with marine boiler.
