JERRY MURPHY MOVES SCOW REOPENING BUFFALO CREEK.
      Mr. Jerry Murphy is superintendent for the Great Lakes Dredge & Dock Co. at this port, and yesterday morning he got on the job at an early hour and before noon he had the Buffalo Creek clear so that navigation, which had been at a standstill since Sunday, could be resumed.
      Supt. Murphy had chains fastened about the sunken scow HARRIGAN, which lay across the river near the new Lackawanna station, and then had one of his big derrick scows give a few pulls and the Creek was once more clear for navigation. Shortly afterwards big ships were passing up and down the river as if nothing had happened to the HARRIGAN. The latter which was found bottom side up in the Creek, was pulled aside and placed alongside the dock in fore & aft position so that vessels can get by without touching the scow.
