TUG RETURNS FROM CUBA.
Blanche Arrived in Port Yesterday
After Two Years in Cuban Waters.
The tug Blanche, owned by the Wilmington Towing Company, which has been in Cuban waters for nearly two years, arrived in port yesterday morning at 2 o’clock in charge of Capt. W. A. Sanders, one of the officials of the towing company. The tug left Wilmington February, 1911, and has been towing mostly in Cuban waters. During that time she has been under the able mastership of Capt. Fred Dosher, who returned with her. Engineer Soldon Delmar, of Beaufort, has returned with her. Both of these gentlemen are most efficient in their line and have done splendid work while abroad. The boat came to Wilmington direct from Miami, Fla., where she carried a tow from a port in Cuba. Mrs. Dosher, who has been with her husband, came by rail, and went to her home in Southport.
