Capt. P.L. Millen, who for the past two years has commanded the big wrecking tug FAVORITE, has resigned, and will be succeeded by Capt. Mart Swain, who formerly had charge of that boat. Capt. Millen has made an enviable record with the FAVORITE, but prefers other work. Capt. Swain has been out of the harness but feels that there is a good deal of youthful blood in him yet, and is not at all averse to appearing again in the rode of wrecker. Up to two years ago he had been at work on the lakes since 1867. and in that period released more than 200 vessels of al] classes, and established his fame all around the lakes. He has more than once released boats given up as total wrecks, notably the ALBANY and NEOSHO, and today many a fine steamer and schooner is afloat and earning money that but for his efforts would be rotting her hull away on some lake shore. - Detroit Free Press.
