Amazonas (Propeller), U107348, 17 Aug 1899
- Full Text
W. C. Richardson of Cleveland has chartered for the balance of the present season from Capt. James Davidson of West Bay City the steamer AMAZONAS and consort ARMENIA and from Capt. J. W. Millen of Detroit the steamer IRON KING and consort IRON QUEEN. The charter is made in the interest of one of the large iron concerns of Cleveland, but the vessels will be managed in the office of W. C. Richardson. The consideration has not been made public. The vessels chartered from Capt. Davidson are among the largest of the wooden craft turned out from his ship yard of late. They will each carry 3,500 gross tons. The IRON KING and IRON QUEEN will carry 2200 and 2500 tons respectively, so that the tonnage as a whole will be quite a help to the iron concern securing it.

Another Cleveland ore house, Tod, Stambaugh & Co., has managed to secure in all six vessels of about 15,000 gross tons aggregate capacity, but their dealings are in the nature of charters for the balance of the season and not purchases. Several days ago they engaged the steamer AMAZONAS and consort ARMENIA, and the IRON KING and consort IRON QUEEN. Now they have added the steamers BERMUDA and BRAZIL, which were chartered to them by Hutchinson & Co. of Cleveland, and which will be managed by that firm.
