What will probably be the largest dredge afloat on fresh water will be launched at the Marine Railway in Ogdensburg next week, hang been under construction since early last spring for the Daly Brothers Dredging company of that city.

Arthur Woods, superintendent of the shipyard, has had the work of construction of the big dredge and the two mud scows, also for Daily Brothers, under his supervision. The work is illustrative of the capabilities of the Marine Railway so far as modern shipbuilding is concerned. The only dredge which approaches in size the one nearing completion is located at Buffalo.

From 40 to 60 men have been kept constantly at work on the dredge and scows. the dredge has been built just west of the marine railway tracks and next week will be consumed in moving her on to the tracks and launching her. It will be several weeks before he dredge is completed.
