BUFFALO BOAT RENAMED WITH APPROPRIATE CEREMONY.
On Monday afternoon the name of the steamer KENSINGTON was changed to that of the M. A. REEB, named for the local contractor of that name. A christening party of about thirty persons were present at the re-christening of the good ship, which is owned by Boland & Cornelius. Miss Reeb, the eighteen-year old daughter of M. A. Reeb, broke a bottle of champagne over the bow in renaming her.
The ceremony was performed at the ore docks of the Lehigh Valley Co., and at its conclusion a dinner was served at which appropriate speeches were made.
Capt. John Larsen will sail the REEB.
