p.1 To Make Investigation - Detroit, Mich., Sept. 30th - The new revenue cutter Tuscorora has arrived here from the Atlantic coast. One of her missions in these waters is to look fully into the trouble which United States fishing boats are giving the Canadian revenue cutter Petrel.

This she will do after she has taken on her full armament. At the present time she carries but one six pound Hotchkiss rapid fire gun, although well equipped with small arms. The Tuscorora is a handsomely modelled craft of the most recent type. She is 170 feet long and thirty-six feet beam; her speed is 15 knots an hour.
