      The monster dredge PAN-AMERICAN, now building by Hingston & Woods of Buffalo, will be towed to Portage Lake, Michigan, as soon as weather will permit, it being desired to begin work May 1 on a big dredging contract at that place. The dredge will dig 700 yards of earth per hour. Her cost was about $75,000. The machinery alone weighs more than 400 tons and there is over 250,000 feet of lumber in the hull.
