The new steel steamer CHARLES S. NEFF built by the Jenks Ship Building Co., for Samuel S. Neff & Sons of Milwaukee, was successfully launched at 2:10 this afternoon at the Company's yard of Black River. The launch was to have taken place some time ago, but the delay was caused by the loss the company sustained in the recent fire which partially destroyed the plant. She will be used in the salt trade on Lake Michigan; together with other boats of the fleet. Her dimensions are: 215 feet overall, 200 feet keel by 38 x 12. There will be two boilers 11 x 12 feet with 125 pounds pressure. They will supply steam for a fore and aft compound engine 22 by 44 inches, with a stroke of 30 inches. The NEFF is valued at $100,000.
