NEW STEAMER MORGAN BREAKS COAL CARGO RECORDS.
Chicago, June 13. ---The new steamer J. PIERPONT MORGAN brought into the Calumet River today a cargo that makes all previous record-breakers look small. It consisted of 13,294 gross or 14,889 net tons of iron ore. The maiden cargo of the big steamer was loaded at Escanaba, and there being no shallow connecting channels between Escanaba and South Chicago the steamer could be loaded to her full depth, or 21 feet 6 inches.
