THE NEW ERA
      Detroit Post & Tribune. -- In the year '74 the tug NEW ERA, of Buffalo, at that time two years old, struck an obstruction in Rond Eau and sunk. About three weeks ago she was purchased by Captain Frank Parker, of this city, who at once commenced the work of raising her, in which he succeeded a few days ago, and the tug is now at Captain Oades' yard undergoing a thorough rebuild, which will cost about $3,000. She has powerful machinery, which is in such good order that she came up from Rond Eau under her own steam. She will receive considerable new plank outside and will be made completely new inside. The work of overhauling her will occupy about six weeks, at the end of which time Captain Parker will have one of the smartest and most powerful little tugs on the lakes. The NEW ERA will be engaged in towing dredges and dump scows.
