Description
Full Text

In the first of the Mills dry docks the big wooden steamer MILWAUKEE, of the Western Transit Company. She appears to be most hopelessly dismantled. Above her main deck forward the planking is torn, showing her skeleton-like frames. The hugh wooden arches which run fore and aft on either side have been sawed of between the uprights, leaving them like hugh arms waving in wild despair at the apparent destruction which a gang of hammering, chopping and sawing workmen are accomplishing. The MILWAUKEE is to have new arches and upper works, which, in addition to other repairs, will cost in the neighborhood of $15,000.
