- Full Text
It was reported yesterday that the pilot house of the tug ACME, sunk by the WILKESBARRE some days ago, was found floating in the river at Niagara Falls. The tugs name appeared on a piece found. The finding of the piece of wreckage is no indication that the tug is breaking up, as the woodwork was old and not particularly strong.
