The Milwaukee Sentinel says: "The launch of the new scow schooner took place from the yard of Messrs. Oertling & Meinardus, on the south side, yesterday afternoon, as announced. She slid on the ways in good style and was christened the SOUTH SIDE. Nothing but oak has been used in the construction of her hull, and there is consequently no stronger or better vessel of her class afloat on the lakes. Her dimensions are as follows: Length 102 ft.; beam 24 ft.; depth, 6 ft., carrying capacity 120,000 ft. of lumber. Messrs. Herman Oertling, Henry Meinardus and John Williamson are her owners. The SOUTH SIDE is to be rigged as a fore and aft schooner, and will receive a second hand outfit."
