TWINS SUCCESSFULLY LAUNCHED AT DETROIT.
The twin steamers ARLINGTON and BRANDON of the Rutland Line were successfully launched at Wyandotte yards of the Detroit Shipbuilding Company on Saturday. Both vessels are of the extreme length allowed for the Welland Canal, 257 feet over all, 244 feet keel and 43 feet beam. Each boat is 26 feet 6 inches in depth. The unusually fine weather drew the largest crowd of the year from Wyandotte and the suburban towns to witness the dual launching.
