Buffalo - The steel arches, which are being put up on the prop. WISSAHICKON by the Union Drydock, in place of the old wooden ones, are a new venture in the art of shipbuilding, as well as a great improvement, as the new arches will not only be stronger, but they will weigh some 24 or 25 tons less than the old ones.
