      It is expected that the steamer GLOBE, just sold to the Bessemer steamship Co. (John D. Rockefeller) by the Globe Iron Works Co. of Cleveland, will carry close to 5,000 gross tons when the work of lengthening her 72 feet is completed. The vessel will be ready to go into commission shortly. The Bessemer company pays $210,000 cash for the GLOBE, but in taking her they have stipulated that she is to be made considerably stronger in several particulars than was first intended. She is to have 15-inch 40- pound longitudinal stringers, running full length under the deck and alongside the hatches. Coal bunkers are to be enlarged and made of steel and hawse pipes are to be provided for two 3,000-pound stockless anchors. The GLOBE will undoubtedly make a very good towing steamer for the Bessemer company.
