Description
Full Text

It is said that $50,000 was spent in rebuilding the burned steamer AURORA into a tow barge. Her capacity will be about 3,500 tons on eighteen feet, but she will by no means be the largest wooden barge on the lakes, as the dispatches have it. The GOLDEN AGE can carry much more than the foregoing, and the YOUKON and some of Capt. James Davidson's barges can do the same. The FEDORA will tow her regularly.
