The new tug which has been in progress of construction on Black River for several months past, was launched at 3:43 on Monday afternoon. Several hundred people watched the handsome little craft as it glided into the water. As the boat slid down the ways a flag bearing the name F.J. HAYNES was unfurled to the breeze. The boat is owned by the Thompson Towing Association. The machinery of the tug ASH will be placed in the boat.
