Gathered in the Local Harbor. The tug John Leathem, Capt. T. Ewing, returned Friday night from Nahma, Mich., where she had succeeded in releasing the barge S. J. Tilden. When the tug arrived there it was found that the craft had been laid up and the crew taken their departure for their homes. This necessitated the hiring of a new crew. The steamer Barth had left the boat and returned to Chicago, but the steamer Trude B. Wiehe was achored (sic) in Big Bay de Noquette, waiting for the tug to get the barge out. The Wiehe had been sent from Menominee, where she loaded only a part of a cargo, being the last boat to leave that port this season. She took the barge in tow and started for Chicago on Friday, the tug returning to this port. On their way here the Leathem passed the steamer Winnipeg on Friday afternoon. She was anchored off Door bluff, there being a heavy fog at the time. The Winnipeg left Green Bay the Wednesday previous, being the last boat out of that port, and was on her way to Boyne City, Mich., to finish her cargo. A coincident connected with the meeting of these boats is that they left Ashtabula at the same time and were together all the way up to Green bay. When the Leathem went to Green Bay city after the Winnipeg came out of that port with her, and when she was returning from Nahma what should loom up in the fog but the same steamer.
