This is what the Buffalo Commercial Advertiser says: "The steam barge SANILAC is about to be converted into a tow-barge, and her owners will build a new and larger steam barge this winter. The new boat will have a larger engine and boilers, and will be stronger in power. The chief reason for changing the present boat, which is really a new boat, not being over four or five years old, is that she has not enough power for the business. It is not known where the boat will be built yet, but it is thought it will be in Cleveland.
