BARGE MAITLAND WAS LAUNCHED.
The new steel barge ALEXANDER MAITLAND, built for the Franklin Transportation Company of Cleveland, was launched this afternoon from the docks of the Buffalo plant of the American Shipbuilding Company at the foot of Ganson Street. An immense crowd witnessed the launching, which was one of the most successful that has occurred in years. Every precaution was taken for the protection of the sightseers and the property of the company. A large fence was built to keep back the water that usually does so much damage.
The barge was christened by Miss Nettie Palmer of this city. It is now completed and ready to be taken up the lakes. It is scheduled to leave here tomorrow, but may not get away till the day after.
