Full Text

While a Detroit tug was at Black River a short time ago, the officers of the revenue steamer Perry boarded her, and took away the captain's papers, because the offical number was not carved on her main beam instead of her strong back, where tugs usually have it. The number was at once engraved in the proper place, and the papers returned. The officers then noticed that the whistle was situated to one side and a little abaft of the smoke-stack. This seemed to trouble them greatly, and they informed the captain that it must be changed as all tug whistles must be forward of the smoke-stack. They informed the captain before leaving that he might yet be fined $200 for not having the whistle properly situated.
