The tow barge ABERDEEN, of the Minch fleet, over which there is some difficulty with underwriters, will be offered for sale May 15 on a libel for $1,875 salvage charges brought by the Crosby Transportation Co. of Milwaukee. The vessel was given up for lost after a storm in October last, but was finally picked up and towed into Grand Haven by the Crosby's company steamer NYACK. Difficulties with the underwriters followed, and the prosecution of the salvage claim results from both owners and insurers refusing to assume it.
