Buffalo Courier: -- Captain Thomas Maytham yesterday sold his tug TOM MAYTHAM to Gurdon Corning, L. P. Mason and Fred Pinett, of Saginaw, for $10,000. The MAYTHAM was built by the Union Dry Dock Company and came out last October. She is 71 feet 6 inches long, 15 feet 3 inches beam and 8 feet hold, and has a steam boiler with a 13 by 20 inch engine. She is practically as good as new. There being more tugs in the harbor than can be profitably employed, the sale must be considered excellent. The MAYTHAM will be commanded by Captain John Henning, and was to leave for Saginaw last night, where she is to engage in harbor towing.
