COWLES FILES LIBEL.
A libel was filed yesterday by Benjamin L. Cowles against the steamers YONKERS and AUBURN for $989, for services rendered by Cowles' tugs and wrecking pumps in raising these vessels when sunk last summer. They are owned by Julius Ullman, who bought them at United States Marshal's sale, ever since which time they have refused to stay afloat, having been raised by Cowles a couple of times and now both are lying sunk at Coit Slip in the Erie Basin.
