The steamer WILLIAM E. COREY, which the builders claim will be the finest freight vessel afloat, will be launched this afternoon at 3 o'clock from the yard of the American Shipbuilding Company at Chicago. She belongs to the Pittsburgh Steamship Company and is named for the president of the United States Steel Corporation. Miss Ada Corey will christen the new boat. A large party of invited guests will witness the launching.

      COREY DOCKED
South Chicago.-- The steamer W.E. COREY, launched several weeks ago, was put in drydock yesterday to have a couple of plates straightened. They were bent when the steamer was dropped into the water, causing a slight leak.
