      The new tug TORCH LAKE, Capt. Dennis Galligan, left this port last evening for Elk Rapids, Grand Traverse Bay, Mich. She was built by Geo. Notter, for the Elk Rapid Iron Co. and was constructed with especial view to tow rafts and lumber barges on Torch Lake. For that purpose she was made with very light draft forward. Her cost was about $7,000. She has 2 wheels, and had on her deck duplicates, as also duplicate of parts of her machinery.
