Andrew Carnegie, Henry W. Oliver and H. C. Frick, all leaders in the Carnegie steel organization, now have big ore carriers in the fleet of the great lakes named in their honor. H.C. FRICK is the name selected for the steamer owned by Capt. John Mitchell and others of Cleveland which is to be launched from the Globe yard of the American Ship Building Co. at Cleveland on Saturday Aug. 5. This vessel to be completed in September, is 6 feet longer than the steamer M.A. HANNA of the same fleet. A duplicate steamer, building at the same yard for the same owners, the Cleveland Steamship Co., will not be completed until next spring.
