Milwaukee, Wis., Oct. 26. -- Shortly after 7 o'clock this evening the tug HAGERMAN, towing the schooner GLEN CUYLER down the river, collided with the small fishing smack G.P. GREEN in the south draw of the Chicago and Northwestern Railway Bridge. The GREEN was struck on the port side, just forward of the pilot house, and cut down to the water's edge. The GREEN was damaged to the extent of $1,200. Her engineer was badly injured. The GREEN was run aground to prevent her from sinking.
