FIRST CANADIAN OIL BOAT TO PLY LAKES THIS YEAR.
      Hamilton, Ont., May 4. - Capt. Norman Scott has been appointed to command the new oil tank steamer IOCOLITE, launched for the Imperial Oil Company at Collingwood yesterday. She is the first oil carrier that has yet been solely built in Canada, and it is said to be a fine example of what Canadian shipbuilders can produce. Equipped with all modern contrivances for the rapid loading and unloading of oil cargoes, she will ply on the Great Lakes and the Atlantic seaboard trade, running from Sarnia right down Lake Erie, Lake Ontario the St. Lawrence River as far south as Savannah, Ga. She is 258 feet in length, over all, forty three feet beam, and eighteen feet from main-deck to keel. She will be ready for service about the first week in June.
