Jim Reid Moves to Port Huron

Port Huron, August 15. - Capt. James Reid, the Bay City wrecker, will take up his residence in Port Huron and will station his tugs and wrecking outfit here. The captain is interested with Edmund Hall in the large sawmill which is being erected in Sarnia bay. In conversation to-day Capt. Reid, in speaking of the wrecked (package freighter) Montana, said, "I do not know whether I shall bid on raising the boat or not. There is no question that she can be raised, but in these days the contracts are filled with clauses which are very distasteful to the average wrecker. A contract usually provides for the payment of a certain sum for the raising of the boat, and after she is raised, if the insurance company is not satisfied, the boat becomes the property of the wrecker. This is a serious obstacle in the way of getting bidders."
