STEAMER GOING OVERLAND
East Tawas, Mich., June 22. - The little passenger steamer Josie, which was purchased by Breweryman Beck, of Alpena, is here for shelter. On arrival at Alpena the boat will be hauled overland to Long lake for use in the excursion business.

- While she was a very small vessel by Great Lakes standards, hauling the steamer (tonnage =20) seven miles to Long Lake must have been a significant project. Either the article is mistaken or the excursion business didn't pan out, as JOSIE (US#77112) ended her days cut down to a tug and used to haul sawlogs to Beck's Mill on Long Lake.
