NEW TUG. - Capt. Frank Perew's new tug, the Wm. G. FARGO, built in Buffalo, arrived at Cleveland on Wednesday on her way to the Detroit River, where she goes into the towing service. She is a splendid tug, and does credit to her builders and owner. Besides being a swift vessel, she is beautifully finished. Captain Felix Perew, a brother of Frank Perew, commands her. So says the Cleveland Leader.
