      Sprung a Leak at Company's Dock and Puts for Shallow Water in Richmond Slip.
The Great Lakes Towing Company's tug HEBARD sprung a leak in front of the tug office at the foot of Indianna street yesterday and Capt. James Hazen ran her over to the shallow water in the Richmond Elevator slip and let her sink there. It is possible the HEBARD had previously struck something on the bottom and parted her sheathing, but the cause of the leak will only be discovered when she is drydocked.

The Great Lakes Towing Company's tug HEBARD, which sprung a leak at the Company's dock and was run over to the Richmond slip, was pumped out and raised yesterday, and a patch placed over the leak. It is impossible to tell how badly she is injured until she is placed in the Buffalo drydock, where she goes today for repairs.
