Captain Edward Van Dalson's new tug - the hull, at least - will arrived here from Saugatuck, where she was built, in a few days. The builder is James Elliot, and he has done his work well. The new boat is 57 feet keel, 14 feet beam, and 7 feet hold. She is about the same model as the new tug ROLLER, of South Chicago, only that the stern is lowered considerably. She will have the engine of the present MARTIN GREEN, and a new steel boiler.
