The new prop. NORWALK was launched from Dulac's shipyard near Mt. Clements, 17 days ago, and in all that time has been able to get only 2 miles away from the scene of birth. Two tugs and a dredge are hard at work on her, but at the present stage of the water are able to move her only a few feet each day. It is said that the tow bill thus far is $1,000, and experienced men say the figure will be doubled soon unless the water rises.
