A wrecking party went out to the sunken tug TOM MAYTHAM yesterday, and a diver fastened a chain around her. He was compelled to come to the surface on account of the heavy seas and nothing more could be done. No attempt will be made to raise the tug while she is in her present condition. One end will be raised and she will be towed inside the breakwater and then brought to the surface by means of a scow. Capt. Collier thinks that she will be up inside a week.
