Yesterday afternoon the docks and river front at Wyandotte were thronged by people who had assembled to see the launch of the new steel stm. HARLEM, built by Detroit Drydock Co. for the Western Transportation Co., of Buffalo. The men commenced "wedging up" about 4:00, and the last blow was struck at 4:30 the huge mass of steel gracefully slipped into the water, which she rode with the ease characteristic of the boats built by Detroit firms.

She is 285 ft. keel, 304 ft. overall, 38 ft. 6 inches beam, 26 ft. hold, and 8 ft. between decks, with 6 water tight bulkheads and triple expansion engine with 23, 36, 62 inch cylinders and 48 inch stroke.
