Sales of lake vessel property other than the Wolvin steamers, referred to elsewhere in this issue, include a controlling interest in the steel steamer CENTURION, which has just passed to Mr. W.G. Mather of the Cleveland-Cliffs Iron Co. The CENTURION, built by F. W. Wheeler & Co. in 1893, is not now among the largest freighters, but she is a well built ship that cost $265,000 when built and may readily be lengthened so as to greatly increase her capacity. Arrangements are also being made whereby the steamer GLOBE, which is being lengthened at the works of the Globe company, will very probably be sold to Cleveland parties within the next few days.
