      Merchant Vessel List, U.S., 1894

      The STRAIGHTAWAY, a steel steam yacht 94 feet long and having a cabin nearly her entire length, was launched a few days ago from the yard of the Cleveland Ship Building Company. The hull, which was rebuilt, was constructed by David Bell of Buffalo several years ago for Detroit parties but had never been used. Isaac Bearinger, East Saginaw lumber merchant, bought the hull and will soon have a good steam yacht.
