THE PERRY ORDERED TO THE PACIFIC
Only Two Revenue Cutters Will Be Left On The Lakes.
Erie, Pa., Sept 26., - The revenue cutter PERRY, Capt A. A. Fengar, received orders here yesterday to report for duty on the Pacific coast. The cutter has been on the lakes for nine years, having been built at Buffalo for the Revenue Marine Service by the present captain.
She is a top-sail, schooner rigged steamer of 282 gross tons, mounting two three inch breech loading rifles. With a compliment of seven officers and 31 men. Only two cutters will be left on the Great Lakes after the PERRY goes, the JOHNSON, in Superior, and the FESSENDEN at Detroit There were four two years ago, and an increase in lake smuggling would not be surprising.
