NOTE:- Engine of the ASH went into tug F.J. HAYNES.

      . . . . .

The new tug JAMES ASH came out for the first trip Saturday. She is the result of Mr. George Notter's best efforts, and is one of the finest models afloat in the tug line. Though not quite as large as or largest river tugs, she may prove fully as effective in the general business of towing. Her engines are 14 x 16. She was built at a cost of about $8,000, is owned by Messrs. Geo. Hand, C.W. Jones, J.H. Jones and O.W. Cheney, and will run in the Hand line.
