William Livingstone, Jr. has succeeded, after nearly eight weeks, in releasing the tug Prindiville from the position she had occupied at Presque Isle [Lake Huron] for about five years. The Prindiville is now at Port Huron, where she arrived yesterday morning. The amount of her damage cannot be determined until she has been placed in dry dock and examined, but it is thought that she will be ready for work in about a month. Much credit is due Mr. Livingstone for the manner in which the wrecking job was conducted, as the circumstances were of a most unfavorable nature and there was great difficulty experienced in obtaining the necessary material and help with which to carry on the work.
