Mr. Bell has about ready for launching a new tug for R. Dumbar & Son, called the PADDY MILES. She was built in Mr. Bell's yard, and has to be moved across Erie Street, which will take until Monday, before she can be launched. The PADDY MILES is a steel tug, 60 feet long, 14 feet beam, and 8 feet deep. She is fitted with a Tifft boiler, nine feet long by five feet four inches in diameter, and a single high pressure engine 14 x 16 inches, built by Mr. Bell. The diameter of the screw is five feet two inches and she will draw six feet of water.
      Mr. Bell has built three tugs for Dumbar & Son in the last two years. The MILES is for use in the Soo River, where Dumbar & Son have contracts.
