Full Text

The new steamship on the stocks at Wolf & Davidson's yard at Milwaukee is to be named after John Plankinton, one of Milwaukee's wealthiest and most enterprising citizens. She will be the largest vessel ever constructed at a Lake Michigan port and will be launched on the Fourth of July. She is 306 ft. long, is expected to carry 2,800 tons of coal or 100,000 bu. corn and will cost $150,000. This firm will build a duplicate of the PLANKINTON, the keel of which will be laid as soon as the latter is launched.
