The new propeller NORWALK was launched from Dulac's ship yard near Mount Clemens seventeen days ago, and in all this time she has been able to get only two miles away from the scene of the birth. The low water is the cause.

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.
