Gathered in the Local Harbor. The Port Washington Advertiser says: "The Smith brothers of this city have commenced through their attorney, A. J. Hedding, in the United States court in Milwaukee, an action for salvage against the Goodrich Transit company, owners of the steamer Atlanta, which burned off this port on the 18th of March last. It will be remembered that Capt. Les Smith, with tug Tessler off this port, was first to reach the burning vessel and that he rescued the sixty two people on board and after transferring them to the steamer Georgia, which arrived on the scene latter (sic),he towed the hull of the steamer, which contained much valuable machinery, etc., to the beach north of this city. For this the Smith brothers feel that they are entitled to some reward, hence the suit."
